Kidz Place – Title 1 Parent Resource Center

STOP THAT WINTER BRAIN FREEZE! We are waiting for you!! The Title 1 Parent Resource Center, also known as the Kidz Place, is a full service library with over 25,000 items available for check out and free of charge! Our services are available for all Washington County residents. We have a large selection of books with AR levels marked, beginning leveled readers, math readers, math and reading games and activities, puzzles, board games, DVDs and videos, music CDs, and lots more. Our qualified staff is on hand to help with parenting concerns and questions.

We have Story Time each week at 10:30 a.m. with a themed curriculum, songs, activities, and use of technology.  Story Time usually starts each school year in September and ends the last of June.

Tail Waggin’ Tutors is a program we host on our late night each month (the first Tuesday) and is sponsored by the Highlands Educational Literacy Program and Washington County Public Schools. “Tutors” are our “furry friends” which are licensed therapy dogs. The dogs are here to sit with children while they read. This both encourages the children in a non-intimidating environment and gives the dogs the cuddling and petting they crave. This program runs September through May each year.
