A child’s brain grows faster between the ages of 0 and 3 than at any later point in their lives. When children have nurturing relationships and positive early learning experiences during the first 1000 days of life, it lays a strong foundation for a successful future.
“Being a parent is hard work and it takes community support to build strong families so children may thrive.” said Amy Haile, Executive Director of Champions for Children. “We are grateful for this opportunity to expand the education, support and resources provided to families to help them feel confident and competent in their earliest days as a parent, because it is this competence that is essential to their child’s lifelong learning, health and behavior.”
Champions’ programs offer resources and education to help build strong parent-child bonds, support healthy child development, help grow parental confidence and skills, and improve family well-being. From breastfeeding support to parent-child educational playgroups, our programs build stronger families through child abuse prevention and family education.
