Family Enrichment Center

The Hospital of Central Connecticut's Family Enrichment Center helps families achieve parenting goals through a blend of services.

Family Enrichment Center

The Family Enrichment Center’s staff are highly trained in child development, parenting, group work and community-based outreach. The Family Enrichment Center is funded by the Office of Early Childhood, and is located on the campus of The Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain. The Family Enrichment Center is spacious and offers homey, comfortable environments for the entire family, including a playroom equipped with interactive toys.

The Family Enrichment Center provides services to enhance parent child interaction via, groups and one-on-one connections, in your home and/or virtually.

The Family Enrichment Center services are modeled after the nationally recognized evidenced based Parents as Teachers curriculum. Parents as Teachers curriculum is designed to support families in learning more about child development, health and safety, and getting their child ready to start school. Parents as Teachers services can start any time before the child starts kindergarten, including during a parent’s pregnancy. These services reach pregnant women, expectant fathers, and parents and caregivers of children under the age of 5.

The Family Enrichment Center services also include Parenting Connections. Parenting Connections are groups that include topics on parenting, relationships, development, nurturing, discipline and creative play experiences.

The Family Enrichment Center services also include specifically designed supports for our fathers. These services vary from small-group conversations about parenting, to in-home or virtual support and one-on-one coaching. Our Father Involvement Parent Educator can work individually with fathers to help navigate a shared role in parental involvement.
