Join us for coffee, pastries and a presentation about our community’s newest initiative for young children: Meck Basics.
The Meck Basics Campaign is inspired by the fact that 80% of brain growth happens in the first three years of life. During this period, skill gaps between socio-economic, racial, and ethnic groups become clearly apparent. This does not need to be! Everyday interactions between children, their parents, and other caregivers provide abundant opportunities to give children from every background a more equal start in life.
The Basics are five evidence-based parenting and caregiving principles that encompass much of what experts find is important for children from birth to age three. Every child from every background can benefit from routinely experiencing the Meck Basics learning experiences.
Join us to learn how you can begin implementing The Basics with your children and/or the children and families you serve today.
