About Us

The PRC provides building blocks that are essential for families. We provide a play space that aids child development and we educate parents on a variety of topics. These services create a solid foundation for the families in our community and they are available to all children age birth to age 5 regardless of family income.

Our History

In 1988, the New York State Education Department issued a request for proposals to fund parent education programs. Ten districts were funded. Corning-Painted Post School District was one of the ten districts chosen. The Nonnie Hood Parent Resource Center opened for business in the Corning-Painted Post School District Administration building on Charles Street in Painted Post in 1988.

From 2000-2001, The Nonnie Hood Parent Resource Center formed its first Board of Directors and moved to its current home in Civic Center Plaza in Corning in order to be more centrally located within the community. That same year, the PRC became incorporated and was granted federal and state not-for-profit status.

Our Mission

The Nonnie Hood Parent Resource Center helps families with young children play, learn, and connect with others in a welcoming and encouraging environment. 

Our Vision

Strong, happy, and playful families connected to their community.
