Parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. Safe, nurturing and literacy-rich early environments are essential to building the social-emotional foundation for school readiness…..and for happy, healthy kids. Bridges To Growth, an Early Childhood Program of The Georgetown Project, helps over 600 parents each year become more confident parents who are knowledgeable about how kids develop and about the importance of positive parenting from day one in a child’s life.
Childcare workers are required to complete training hours annually to work with children in registered daycare settings. Bridges To Growth is the only local source for ongoing provider training. About 200 childcare and preschool workers each year have access to low-cost quality training at Bridges To Growth.
