A child’s early years set the trajectory for the relationships and successes they will experience for the rest of their lives, making it crucial that all children are afforded the high-quality early learning experiences they need to thrive.

  • Go on a walk outside and look for bugs, flowers, colors and shapes. Talk about them with your child; let them touch items that are safe to explore more closely.
  • Use play dough, paint, shaving cream, dirt or sand to explore different materials and textures. Draw pictures, letters numbers and shapes using your fingers.
  • Give your child crayons and paper to draw with and measuring spoons and cups to play with water.
  • Visit your local library for books and child classes.
