Resources for FFNs
Caregiver Cafés are a great way to learn about child development, share challenges, & build friendships and support.
The current Caregiver Cafe is located at:
1128 Yuba Street, Marysville CA 95901
Playgroups are a great space for children and their caregivers to get out of the house and socialize, in a developmentally appropriate setting. These regularly scheduled groups support children's social development, ease the transition to school, and improve overall health, while also providing social and health support to parents, knowledge sharing, and learning opportunities.
Current playgroups include:
Help Me Grow Playzeum (various times/locations throughout Yuba County)
