Project Family is a free early childhood education and parenting program for speakers of other languages as well as English-speaking Arlington residents: parents and children from pre-birth to age five.
Weekly pre-natal, infant and early childhood classes are interactive and easily accessible at sites throughout Arlington County. Project Family seeks to enhance parenting skills of participants and to prepare children for school. Project Family focuses on the whole child and teaches parents activities to promote the child's physical, language, cognitive, and social-emotional development, emphasizing the importance of routines and learning through play. Classes are culturally sensitive, provide support and networking opportunities, and familiarize parents with best practices related to child development, health, safety and nutrition. Classes are offered in Spanish, English, and bilingually.
Project Family exists in partnership with the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Council #4606.
