Hands-on Learning!


                              The Learning Cooperative  

Your child learns more in his first 5 years than he will in college!  Early learning may look like fun and games, (it is!) but studies show that the biggest gains in brain development come before age 5!  Early education sets the foundation for all learning to come.  With stakes this high, your child deserves a program that partners with parents and welcomes your participation. 

The Learning Coop is brought to you by Salem Family Resources, a trusted partner and advocate for young children and their families since 1994. 
The Learning Cooperative is a unique early education program that engages and empowers parents in their child's most critical learning years.
Children who attend an early education program are much more likely to finish high school and continue their education.

Salem Family Resources presents early childhood            impact of family medical leave to             NH Legislators- December, 2017

Congresswoman Ann Kuster, leads a  Roundtable on Youth Opioid Education and Prevention with Salem Family Resources and NH Leaders 

Salem Roundtable Raises Concerns of Child Care Affordability, Effect on Workforce                      Parents, community leaders, child care/early education providers, and NH State legislators gathered at Salem Family Resources-Success By 6 in Salem, to discuss the challenges working families face due to the high costs of child care in the Granite State. The meeting was held as part of a series of roundtables across New Hampshire sponsored by a coalition of early childhood advocates. "The cost and availability of quality child care is a barrier to parents participation in the NH workforce with low and middle income families grappling with questions over whether they can afford to work," said Amanda Sears, Director of the Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy, and moderator for the discussion. "As our business community, legislature, and Governor look at ways to address NH's workforce shortage they should consider policies that help families with young children afford the care that allows them to participate in our workforce and provide for their families." The cost of child care in New Hampshire now exceeds rent as the largest part of the budget for a typical family with young children. By the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' standard for affordability, only 30.3 percent of Granite State families can afford child care for a new child.  "As a working parent, it is hard to overstate the importance of having accessible, quality child care," said Dan Santos, a Salem parent. "At one point we were paying close to $2,600 a month, I mean that's more than our mortgage. A substantial portion of our income goes to child care, we can't afford to put anything in a 401(k). While it's a real struggle to pay, we are committed to quality early childhood education. My oldest child has absolutely benefited from having quality care at The Learning Cooperative of Salem Family Resources-Success By 6 and is now thriving in first grade."                                        A recent poll conducted by The Feldman Group shows that 80% of the New Hampshire electorate supports increased access to affordable, quality child care.                                                     The Campaign for a Family Friendly Economy is advocating for family friendly policies that help Granite Staters make ends meet and be there for their families when they need to be including fixing our broken child care system, providing guaranteed earned sick days, funding the Family Medical Leave program and lifting wages.

Ann McLane Kuster, NH, held a roundtable discussion with NH stakeholders at Salem Family Resources to discuss their work, and to announce her support for federal legislation to increase access to childcare and early childhood education.  The discussion also provided Kuster with a chance to hear from SFR parents, Jen Trela and Dan Santos, and advocates about how Congress can help support working families with young children, so their thoughts can be included in the Congresswoman's forthcoming "Working Families Agenda."
