EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT & LITERACY

Description

We are actively working to prepare all of Norwalk’s young children for school through participation in the Norwalk Early Childhood Council and our involvement in efforts going on at the state level.  We play a leadership role as a member of the NECC  Steering Committee and we are the fiscal agent for the Graustein Memorial Fund investment in Norwalk’s early childhood work. 


Our current focus is supporting parent education and engagement with a particular emphasis on early literacy. We have provided support for bringing the Reach Out and Read program back to the Norwalk Community Health Center.


We also support Child FIRST and STAR Rubino Birth to Three.  These programs are addressing the physical, mental and emotional needs of young children and their families.


We have provided support so toddlers could continue to attend preschool during the summer to address summer slide.
