The Family Place of Transylvania County

The Family Place offers family resources and prepares fun, educational activities for parents and children, ages 0-12, with a special emphasis on 0-6 year-old children.  The organization provides drop-in playgroups for parents/caregivers and their children including occasional local field trips. Their Circle of Parents groups offer a great way to build community with other families.  The Family Place also offers parenting classes such as Incredible Years and Circle of Security), a Family Learning Garden, and community playgroups (a mobile resource for parents/caregivers and their children, ages 0-6 years).  The Family Place is primarily funded through grants and donations, resulting in no cost to participating families for its programs.
