Child & Family Services

Early Years Project

Early Years Project - Riverside Community Care

The Early Years Project was developed to support children (infants through age six) and their families by working with the early childhood communities that care for them. Our child development consultants provide many services such as classroom management support and modeling different ways of working with hard to manage behaviors. The consultants also meet with staff or parents/guardians to offer ideas to support them in the classroom or at home, provide resources and referrals for specialized services, and more. Our employees often speak two languages and our programs are respectful of the various cultural norms practiced within each family.

The Early Years Project is a collaboration that includes The Guidance Center, (a service of Riverside Community Care), the City of Cambridge, Cambridge Community Partnerships for Children, The Cambridge Public Schools and the Cambridge Health Alliance.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:

"Our family therapist was very easy to talk with and helpful in teaching us to communicate with each other without arguing. They made an impact on all of us. Thank you for making a difference in our lives." - Anne-Marie
