The Chelsea / Revere Family Network

What is the Chelsea / Revere Family Network?

The Chelsea / Revere Family Network is a community-based information and resource hub for all families in the community in order to increase knowledge of and accessibility to high-quality early education and care programs and services. The Chelsea / Revere Family Network has been in operation since 1998 serving families with children birth through age eight. This program is funded by the Coordinated Family & Community Engagement (CFCE) grant and awarded to CAPIC by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.

What does The Chelsea / Revere Family Network provide?

The Chelsea / Revere Family Network provides universal strength-based education and support programs for families of children aged birth through early school age. Direct services include:

  • Playgroups for children birth to age eight.
  • Self-development workshops and trainings for parents
  • Parenting education programs and support groups
  • Family Literacy programs with Raising A Reader and FCN lending library
  • Community Events and Family Celebrations
  • Information and referral services
  • Help providing basic human needs such as clothing and food

The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care along with the Family Network would like to invite you to engage in developmental screening with your child using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). Developmental screening provides families the opportunity to share and learn about their child’s development, to celebrate their growth, and to address any questions or concerns they may have about what “typical” development looks like.

Ages and Stages Questionnaire – English.
Ages and Stages Questionnaire – Spanish.
