Family Connections

Peter Ehrhorn , Associate Executive Director
3460 West Bayshore Road
Palo Alto, CA 94303


Our mission is to create the highest quality family learning community so underserved children and parents together become the drivers of their own success.

Family Connections knows that a positive family dynamic is key to a child’s success. That is why Family Connections is a family learning community focused on education and growth for underserved children AND their parents and caregivers.

Family Connections is a free, bilingual family learning community, serving families with young children from all over San Mateo County at our Redwood City and East Menlo Park locations. Every child deserves a healthy start in life, regardless of their family’s socioeconomic status, and the research is crystal clear: young children need a strong foundation of support to meet development milestones and set in place the building blocks of successful futures. That’s why Family Connections focuses on whole family education and support to build strong, resourced and resilient families and a more equitable future for San Mateo County.

Early learning programming is offered for the littlest (0 years – 3 years) to the biggest (5+ years), and everyone in between. All early childhood education services are parent participatory and play-based, allowing children to develop and learn alongside their caregivers in a safe environment, guided by Family Connection’s experienced instructors.

Learn more about our early childhood education programs here.

Family Connections’ unique parent participation programs provide a number of ways for individuals or groups to volunteer. Help out once or more regularly. We are flexible and happy to have your support.
