Nurturing Children. Supporting Parents.

Changing Communities.


We believe that by nurturing children and supporting parents, we have the ability to change our community for the better. If we’re successful, we’ll build thriving generations of families who are doing their best–not only for themselves, but also for their neighbors, including you.

Ready for School Programs

A child’s first five years of life are essential for school readiness and healthy development. Through family house calls, monthly group meetings and pediatrics partnerships, our Family Educators ensure that all of our children are ready for school.

Expanded Learning Services

Our before and after school learning, summer enrichment camp, and tutoring sessions provide students the support they need to thrive and ultimately reach their full potential.

We’re committed to serving families.

Our qualified staff and partners provide the best care and support for our parents and children.

Our Families

Julie and Jonathan Lanford

“The advice and resources we’ve received through Imprints Cares’ educational seminars and parent education sessions have helped us be more confident parents. The seminars and sessions help spread the most effective and evidence-based recommendations. This helps to break cycles that aren’t helpful and introduce parenting strategies that will raise more confident, educated and healthy children. That makes our community a better place for everyone!”

Our Teachers

Lori Richards, Mentor, Teacher & Volunteer

“I find it very rewarding to create enrichment activities and field trips at Imprints Cares. Not only do they bring the fun, but they also provide learning experiences throughout the summer and to the before and after school programs! Mentoring children has always been an important part of my life. Imprints Cares gives me the avenue to be part of a wonderful team to make that happen. I love children of all ages and I learn from them as much as they do from me!”

Our Mission

To enrich children’s development while supporting their families on the journey of parenthood.
Every fall, as many as 50 percent of Forsyth County kindergartners arrive on the first day of school already behind.
Given the right resources and necessary support for both them and their family members, children will thrive.
Imprints Cares provides families with the tools they need to raise children who are safe, healthy and ready to learn.
Imprints Cares offers a unique before- and after-school program —relying primarily on educators who provide care in schools where they teach, to children they see in the classroom.
No matter their resources, we believe that all families can benefit from support and guidance.
With your support, Imprints Cares can reach and support more families. Unlocking the full potential of children and their families for success in school and in life.
