About Us

Mission

Building Strong Communities, One Family at a Time

The Springfield Area Parent Child Center (SAPCC), a member of the Vermont Parent Child Center Network is a nonprofit organization that offers services for all pregnant women and families with young children in southern Windsor and northern Windham counties.  We believe that raising children is both a delightful and demanding job, undoubtedly the most important job there is, and we are here to offer support and education for adults and children.

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.
