Mission

Building bridges of support for children, families & caregivers

The Springfield Area Parent Child Center (SAPCC), a member of the Vermont Parent Child Center Network, is a nonprofit organization serving southern Windsor and northern Windham counties.  SAPCC builds bridges of support for children, families and caregivers by fostering relationships, establishing a culture of learning, and engaging in community collaborations to shape opportunities for the world around us.

The First 5 Years

History

The SAPCC was incorporated in 1992 to address the increasing demands on families in our area. Since then we have grown from our small space on Myrtle Street, to building a beautiful new campus on Main Street in North Springfield. Here we can now host a wide range of community services under one roof to help support families, engage community partners, and provide early childhood education and development programs.
