COVID-19 information and related early childhood resources.
Young children who benefit from strong parent-child relationships have greater self-confidence, do better in school, and have more positive relationships with peers.
High-quality, early education is critical to young children’s development, as it prepares them for all future learning.
Health is the foundation of children’s growth and development. Early intervention and linking families to needed services can help ensure overall positive outcomes for children.
