Early Childhood

There Is No One Like Your Child!

Every child's development is unique and complex. Research indicates that the most significant gains in brain development occur during the FIRST THREE YEARS of a child's life. The infant's brain is virtually exploding with new connections and pathways as they record and process stimuli from the environment.  It is during this time that the foundation for later cognitive, social, emotional, language, reading and motor skills is formed. 

Help your child reach their optimum potential by providing a high quality, nurturing and stimulating environment so that he/she may learn and develop. Below are several programs that can help you, your child and your family. For more information, click on the selected program. Can't find what you're looking for? Call the FRC and talk with Ms. Casey for a detailed list of community resources especially for you and your circumstances.

 

Your Family Resource Center provides The Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ-3) free of charge to families with children aged 1 month to 5 1/2 years old. ASQ-3 is a parent-completed child monitoring system used for early and accurate identification of developmental delays and disorders in infants and young children. Each questionnaire is simple and contains 30 questions that can be answered by observing your child on a daily basis. If you are interested in participating in an ASQ-3, please contact the FRC.
