Family Engagement Center
The Family Engagement Center is a place for families to come and gather to learn more about child development, parenting strategies, and developmentally appropriate ways to play with their children. The center will provide an avenue for parents to engage in meaningful play with their children, as well as to allow parents to connect with school staff and other parents. Together parents and children will learn about the world through play, music, art, and books.
The Family Engagement Center is a service provided by Kearney Public Schools and is available by appointment only. It is open to children age 5 and younger whose families live inside the Kearney Public Schools district area.
