Better Beginnings is a program that supports the health and learning development of prenatal to age 5 children and their families. Recent studies have shown that the years from birth to five years old are the most important in a child’s growth. A child’s activities during this crucial period can determine how the child’s brain is wired. This wiring lays the groundwork for how the child will get along and learn later in life. Better Beginnings is a partnership of community service organizations whose goal is to create a positive and nurturing environment that allows a child to develop to their fullest potential, by providing an effective networking and referral system.
