Community Group Formed to Tackle the "0 to 5" Audience

 Community leaders met in the United Way office to work together to identify and then overcome the barriers tied to our local families whose children are not yet in kindergarten.  

Children need to be "ready for kindergarten" so that they will not start out behind in school.  We can help these families by teaching them the importance of developmental milestones, and how to get help if their children are not reaching these milestones.  

The group will continue to meet and welcomes support from the broader community.  Contact us for more information.
