Parent & Child Center

Last Updated :

The Parent & Child Center is located at 410 7th Avenue, across from the Auto Skills Center. It is a no-charge parent and child facility offered by the Airman and Family Readiness Center. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

You are welcome to come and go anytime during those hours and you do not have to register or call prior to coming. The Parent & Child facility offers a large and spacious area with a fun, relaxing, and colorful environment. Different crafts and activities are offered on a daily basis in the craft area. It also features a separate room for large motor movement where your child/children can play on the bouncy balls, ride the toy vehicles and climb through tunnels, among other things. There are several other large areas for free play, including everything from puppets and puzzles, Legos, a play house and a toy kitchen area. We also have a “real” kitchen area that enables you to have some fun cooking with your kids! 

The Parent & Child Center also has various speakers and agencies from both on and off the Grand Forks Air Force Base. They offer both their services and useful information on nutritious snacks, parenting, dental care for young children, and more. The Military Family Life Consultants also visits the Center on a regular basis. 

One benefit of the Parent & Child Center is getting out of the house and meeting other Air Force families – a great opportunity to both visit and learn from each other! It’s also a great place to find out about what’s happening both on and off the base! More information on the Parent & Child Center can be obtained by calling 747-3837.
