At Franklin Early Childhood Center, we have two programs:

Parents as Teachers is a parent education and family support program
designed to help all parents give their children the best possible start in life.
We provide families with information on child development, prenatal through
kindergarten entry. During home visits, we involve parents in learning activities
with their child that encourage language and intellectual growth, physical and
social-emotional skills. Our program is free, voluntary, and offers the following:
personal home visits, family connection events with child-parent activities or
speakers, newsletters, developmental screenings, and resource connections with
other agencies. We strive to enroll all Webb City families with children ages 0-5.

Our MOA AccreditedDay Care offers child care to children, ages birth-5,
of Webb City students and staff, enabling teens to continue their education.
We work closely with the young parents to promote their knowledge of
child development and encourage good parenting skills. Parents as Teachers
also provides services to our teen parents for the welfare of the whole family.
