Mission: The Bethel Family Resource Center supports healthy, strong families, school readiness, and positive school-home connections through support for parents and caregivers of Bethel students, preschool programs and family fun!
The Bethel FRC is a Bethel School District program and is funded by United Way, Bethel School District and small grants and partnerships in the community.
Parents and caregivers of young children are our first and most important teachers. Our programs promote healthy attachments between little’s and their grown-ups, support healthy social, emotional and intellectual development for children, and provide opportunities for everyone to learn and practice new skills.
Our staff is here to support families of Bethel students in navigating school district and community resources. We want every family, every student and every child under 5 in Bethel School District to have the resources, stability and skills to grow, learn and thrive.
Fall 2022: We are excited to open our doors for in person programs and services! We have lots of new experiences, toys and updates in our space. We have also added a lending library, with books to read with children and books for parents and caregivers.
“Play gives children the chance to practice what they are learning. It is the things we play with and the people who help us play that make a great difference in our lives” – Mr. Rogers
