Family Resource Center Overview

  • The Wilson County Schools Family Resource Center exists to provide leadership, educational support and resources, and to implement quality programs that strive to engage and empower families.

    Our vision is to provide families with the necessary life skills, information, education, and resources to ensure the best education for Wilson County Children.

    The Family Resource Center serves all schools in Wilson County

    Our offices are located at 415 Harding Drive in Lebanon, and Watertown Elementary. Someone from our office is available to travel to any school and/or assist any family in the Wilson County area.


    Wilson County Schools Family Resource Center provides parenting support and education that can make your role as a parent less stressful and more enjoyable. 

    Some of the challenges of parenting can be:

    • Overwhelming
    • Discouraging
    • Stressful
    • Confusing

    It is natural for all parents to have some or all of these feelings at times. This is why parenting support and education is so important.  Parenting is rewarding because your child is amazing and capable of endless possibilities
