WHAT: Church of the Good Shepherd will be hosting a diaper pantry for WIC clients & others, living in Clinton, Bolton, Sterling, Lancaster, Berlin or Boylston or WIC Clinton clients. Thirty free diapers per month are available for qualified children, newborn to age 3 1/2.

      WHEN: First Wednesday of each month – 4:00-5:30 pm Third Tuesday of each month – 10:30 am- 12 pm (Recipients may pick up diapers once per month.)

WHERE: Church of the Good Shepherd, 209 Union Street, Clinton MA – 978-365-5169

Please bring your WIC Household ID number. If you are not enrolled in WIC, you must bring your child’s birth certificate to the first pick-up. Only parents or legal guardians may pick up diapers for a child. Diapers may be picked up once per month. For example, if you attend a Wednesday diaper pantry, you are not eligible to pick up more diapers at the Tuesday pantry in the same month.

It is our hope to supply diapers to all who qualify, but the reality is we may run out of diapers in certain sizes or run out of diapers completely. Your feedback and needs will be taken into consideration for any future diaper pantry openings.

Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)


You are your child’s most important teacher and we at the Clinton Early Childhood Resource Center are here to support you in that role.


Please ask Miss Regina, Miss Pat or myself if you are interested in the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). The ASQ a quick check of your child’s development. It is a free tool for parents of children ages 1 month through 5 1/2 years old. It provides a snapshot of your child’s development.


The ASQ will help you to celebrate your child’s strengths and provide supportive strategies if there is an area identified where your child may need more help or practice.


The CECRC is using the ASQ to assist you (the parent/guardian) in determining if your child is developing on track, to recognize parents as the experts of their own children, to further build the CECRC-parent relationship and to help ensure children are ready for school. Building partnerships is something we do well. It is the driving force for community work!
