In 2006, a team from public and private New York State agencies came together to consider how to increase families’ ability to nurture positive development in their children, part of the newly created Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems (ECCS) plan. They convened a statewide forum for parenting education providers to present the plan, and the New York State Parenting Education Partnership (NYSPEP) was launched.
Working in collaboration with the Certified Home Health Agency (CHHA), nursing care is provided within the home setting with skill, compassion, and warmth. Provided care fulfills NYS Department of Health’s Division of Home and Community-based Services regulations.
This Parent Education Program is designed to educate divorcing or separating parents about the impact of their breakup on their children. The primary goal is to teach parents ways they can reduce the stress of family changes and protect their children from the negative effects of ongoing parental conflict in order to foster and promote their children’s healthy adjustment and development.
This is your Guide, the story of the first five years of your parenting journey. Whether you are the mother or father (through birth, adoption, or foster care), a grandparent, partner, family friend, aunt or uncle with parenting responsibilities, what you say and do in your role as a parent matters.
The Parent Center takes a holistic life-balance approach that focuses on the roles of parent, grandparent, and family. All Parent Center workshops are online with one-to-one service options both in person and online. Our team is trained in health, behavioral health, life-span development and wellness, and in addressing cultural influences on parenting styles.
The ParentChild + program (PC+) is a national, evidence-based literacy and parenting model. It provides parents with the knowledge and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home. Extensive scientific research consistently has found that this model significantly improves parent-child interactions, increases school readiness and later school success, and reduces risks of child abuse and neglect—so much so that it has been recognized by the White House as an official Bright Spot in Hispanic Education. We are pleased to bring this nationally recognized program to families in Queens.
