Family Resource Center

Family Resource CenterThe Rio Rico Family Resource Center helps families with children aged 0-5 in Santa Cruz County to prepare for kindergarten. We provide free classes, activities, and social events. Children who attend the Family Resource Center do better on their DIBELS standardized tests when they arrive to kindergarten. Parents stress less and have a more realistic expectation of how to involve and support their child's learning.

We invite you to come visit and meet our staff.

Kindergarten Readiness

Our kindergarten readiness classes will help prepare parents and children for their first school experience. We work with our kindergarten readiness students on sorting and counting; large and small motor skills; following directions; playing with other children; and recognizing letters, shapes, and numbers. We also offer practical lessons parents can use at home to help prepare their preschool-aged child for elementary school.

If your child will be attending kindergarten next school year, we highly encourage you to enroll him or her in our kindergarten readiness program this year. To sign up for this excellent program, call (520) 375-8680.
