Supporting Parents Through Education

SRQ Story Project


Forty Carrots Family Center’s comprehensive Parenting Education program strives to help families create environments that nurture healthy minds, compassionate hearts, and responsible behavior. From a teen parent who is struggling with the reality of motherhood to a couple trying to understand co-parenting and how to respond to challenging behaviors, Forty Carrots provides any willing family with the opportunity to become the family they desire. Each program offered by Forty Carrots is facilitated by specially trained Parenting Educators that travel through the community delivering a unique combination of parenting education and early childhood education. From free, drop-in Partners In Play classes held weekly at community libraries to weekly Talk & Play newborn classes at the Parenting Center, Forty Carrots has developed unique curriculums and service delivery methods to help parents understand child development in a rich and interactive learning environment. Play and caregiving relationships are the motivation and foundation for all of the Parenting Education work. Caregivers walk away with information, skills, support to better equip them in the job of raising their children. For more information about Forty Carrots parenting programs, contact Christina Rodrigues, Parenting Program Director. 

Forty Carrots Family Center is a 2015 SRQ Story Project partner and the featured non-profit organization this May. To learn more about the numerous education and outreach programs provided by Forty Carrots, visit them online at or call (941) 365-7716.
