New in Malden Public Schools!

A weekly home visiting program that offers free books and toys, with ideas for using them, to families with children age 18 months-3 ½ years of age!  This program is for families who may have a decrease in their income, or family stress such as isolation, issues with housing, food, clothing.

The ParentChild+ Program, as stated on their National Site, “Envisions a world where every child enters school ready to succeed because every parent has the knowledge, skills, and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home.”  The Mission Statement states that the Program provides “Families with the necessary skills and tools to ensure their children achieve their greatest potential in school and in life”…It is a  “Proven school readiness program that builds early parent-child verbal interaction and learning at home.  Together we are strengthening families and communities, and preparing the workforce of the future.”

“Parents discover their role as their children’s first and most important teacher, assisting them in building brighter futures for their family, and preparing children to be successful students. We see evidence of the Program’s success each day in children discovering the joy of reading and learning, and in parents beaming with pride over their children’s accomplishments. “
