Family Support Services

NBCC recognizes that parents are children's first and most effective educators. As professionals in early childhood education, we know that having parents actively engage their children in conversation, reading and play has a positive impact on their development and future education. In fact a strong home learning environment will give a child life long benefits. Not only is our job to support the optimal development of children, but also to support parents as they develop their children, as well.

NBCC works closely with all agencies committed to serving the needs of children and families.  In Marin County we collaborate with Parent Services Project, the Early Childhood Mental Health Project (Jewish Family Services), Novato School Readiness (First Five), Marin Child Care Council, Easter Seals, MCOE, Matrix and others.

In Sonoma County we are member of the Sonoma County Child Care Planning Council, the Sonoma County School Readiness Initiative (First Five and CAPS), Early Learning Institute, SCOE, and others.
