You've heard it takes a village to raise a child? We're the village!

Our Story

In 2008, the Cincinnati Family Enrichment Center opened its doors to the residents of Northside and surrounding communities. 

As founders of the CFEC, we strive to create a center that fosters a sense of community among parents. It's our goal to develop a place dedicated to supporting and celebrating parenthood through interactive children's classes, timely parenting workshops, and a supportive social environment tailored to both parents and children.

It is with great excitement and with much pleasure that we bring our vision to life. Come visit our sun room, cozy porch, and play cafe. We can't wait to meet you!
