Welcome to Family Resources of Natick!
We’re the place to call and visit for FREE parent-child playgroups, drop-in playtimes, information about preschool, help with the transition to kindergarten, parenting workshops, a lending library of parenting books, and parenting support, resources and referrals to all Natick families with children through the elementary school years!
Family Resources of Natick (FRN) is a Coordinated Family and Community Engagement program funded by the Department of Early Education and Care. Our objectives are to provide comprehensive support to families in Natick with children through a combination of direct services and referrals.
In addition to the programs listed above, FRN provides assistance in finding appropriate child care and preschool placements in Natick, including linking families to available financial assistance. For families with children approaching Kindergarten age, we provide information to supplement the screening and registration process from the Natick Public Schools, including parent workshops and support.
We are located at The Cole Center, 179 Boden Lane, Natick,
and can be reached at 508-655-2557.
Our Program Director is Pam Koskovich, a lifelong Natick resident and Natick parent, who was formerly the Asst. Program Coordinator in our program for 6 years. As of summer 2012, Brita Vitello is our Service Coordinator, joining FRN with a wealth of experience in the Kindergarten classroom as well as experience with other classrooms, and in an early intervention program.
Our objective is to promote family education, literacy, and engagement in the community. We maintain a safe and enriching space for families to play and meet other Natick families with young children.
