Welcome to the Woodrow Wilson School Family Resource Center (FRC)

"A Bridge Connecting Home and School"

The Family Resource Center is based in a school setting. We work with families and with community partners to help children grow and acquire literacy skills for a lifetime love of learning.

The FRC provides educational programs from children from birth through five years of age. It also provides programs for childcare givers and for parents. We have our Little Learners Playgroup every Tuesday and Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m.
