Parent Cafés are a series of parent group conversations where parents can make new friends, engage in positive conversations, and learn about school and community resources. Parent Cafés follow a specific process and a set of questions that motivate parents to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences they need to talk about. Having these conversations help build 5 Protective Factors:

(resilience, relationships, knowledge, support, and communication)

Most important, the Parent Café process includes follow-up, leading to real change in the lives of families and communities. The Cumberland County Partnership for Children (CCPFC), in partnership with Army Community Services (ACS), arranged for several community agency representatives to be trained to host the Be Strong Families Parent Cafés. The CCS Pre-k Department hosts monthly Parent Cafés which are free and open to staff and parents. Everyone should try at least one Parent Café!

Resilience, The Biology of Stress & the Science of Hope – Movie Screenings

Through the SOAR (Strengths in Overcoming Adversity thru Resiliency) Committee, Cumberland County has set a goal for widespread dissemination of information regarding the impact of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). Resilience is a documentary that delves into the science of ACEs and the movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. The CCS Pre-k Department staff is available to facilitate screening of Resilience for your staff or parent meetings. Check out the movie trailer and short video. Please call the Pre-K Office if you would like to schedule a screening.
