For Parents:


The Council on Children and Families has debuted a new parenting resource! The NYS Parenting Portal provides parents and caregivers with multiple tips, tools and resources to enhance the roles of parent and caregiver.

Resources within the portal include:

· A downloadable Parent Guide that provides tools for a successful first five years of the parenting journey.

· A NYS Child Care and After School Programs Locator to assist with locating quality programs in your neighborhood.

· Information about Every Student Present: a public awareness campaign that helps parents and caregivers to ensure that children attend school every day.

· A Multiple Systems Navigator that provides information on how to access and navigate multiple human service, health, education, and disability services.
