We all love seeing what our children can do! Through funding from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care (EEC), South County Community Partnership offers a FREE tool for families to get a quick sense of their child's development - and information on how to best support their growing skills and abilities!
Check it out at https://www.asqonline.com/family/67deb1 - BOTH the traditional ASQ-3 AND the ASQ: SE-2 are now available and families are invited to complete both for a full picture of their child's age-appropriate development!
South County Community Partnership is funded by the Coordinated Family & Community Engagement (CFCE) grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), in-kind donations from our local partners, and operated under the direction of our Advisory Council.
Serving the communities of Oxford, Dudley, Charlton, Webster, and Southbridge, we offer local family-focused programming and services to support you as your child's first teacher.
Weekly educational playgroups, child/caregiver workshops, events, and parent workshops are offered year-round.
We are committed to advocating, supporting, and promoting appropriate early childhood experiences and practices for children, their families, and educators within the community.
