Program Information

Being a parent is hard work!

In the first few years, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in life. 85% of brain development happens before age 3 and you help shape your child’s future through the kinds of experiences you provide. Your baby was born to learn and as a parent, you are your child’s first teacher.

The Birth to Three Program in School District 33 is a Baby TALK Program. The program focuses on:
  • Parent-child Interactions and the parent-child relationship
  • Parenting topics that are important to you such as behavior, potty-training, and sleep
  • Family Well Being and Connections to Resources
Families who are expecting a baby or with children under age 3 are screened for the program using our Parent Interview.  Developmental screenings, vision screenings, and hearing screenings are completed for any children in the community beginning at 3 months of age.

  • Fun and educational activities in your home on a flexible schedule that meets your needs
  • Playgroups for infants and toddlers with their parents in the community
  • Groups for expecting mothers
  • Field trips and family events
  • Community School events such as Zumba, Family Game Night, Parenting Education Classes, English classes
