The Family Center

Creating worlds of opportunity for each and every learner.

Welcome to the Columbia Heights Public Schools Family Center!

  • The Family Center is a wonderful place for children, birth to five-years-old, and their families to learn and grow together. All of our Early Childhood and Parent Educators are licensed teachers who are knowledgeable in child development and guidance. Our programs nurture the parent-child relationship and help support children's language, intellectual, physical, social and emotional development. Parents know this is a great place to meet new friends with children of the same age, to share wisdom and to learn from each other. We invite you to come and experience the many classes and programs that we have to offer!
