Child Development screenings:

Each child in our program receives a yearly child development screening. This screening covers communication, gross and fine motor, problem solving skills, social and emotional development, health, vision, and hearing. The screening helps both the parent and the parent educator better understand the individual child's development, set goals, and provide targeted activities to help the child reach milestones.

Group Connections:

These events provide families within our community an opportunity to connect with other families, learn new skills, and provide important social experiences for their young children.
