You can see a child’s development by how they play, learn, speak, and act. Parents and caregivers play a critical role in their child’s development. Providing a safe and loving home and spending time together – playing, singing, reading, and even just talking – can make a big difference! Come learn more about what milestones you should be expecting for your child and learn about the free tools available for tracking your child's development.

Preschoolers can learn important literacy skills when they are playing! As the adult, you can support their literacy by modeling reading and letter recognition, creating problems to solve, and providing toys that encourage story-telling. Join us to discover how you can create fun, play-based literacy activities at home.
