Family Resource Center
Ms. Ruby Merentes is the Family Resource Coordinator at Manchester Preschool Center.
At Head Start, we believe in Parent Engagement rather than Parent Involvement.
When parents are actively engaged in their child's learning,
parents and teachers can support each other thoroughly, and students excel.
Manchester Preschool Center in partnership with UCONN held Cooking Matters, 9 session nutrition and parenting program for fathers. This group of Dads together with their young children are learning how to eat and cook healthy meals! What a treat to see how much they enjoyed each other in addition to preparing yummy salads and wraps. This session was a thumbs up for our families!
Family Fun Night
Head Start hosted a "Family Fun Night" on Wednesday, January 25th. They partnered with Building Healthy Families and they brought out the "Imagination Playground."
