Birth to Five has been helping families in Wayne County since 1991. In that time, we have served more than 5000 families through our Parents as Teachers and Healthy Families Programs.
The consistency of support, ideas for developmentally appropriate activities that I receive at each visit as well as the playgroups are greeting for meeting other families.
Just being able to talk about concerns with my child makes the all the difference in my parenting ability.
The home visits I have received have helped my daughter with her speech tremendously.
Reaffirming what I believed to be true about my child’s cognitive skill level and the fact that our educator has worked in the school systems and knows the ins and outs.
Knowing what the milestones are and where our daughter stands. Also creative and cost effective ways to make toys.
We are first time parents. We were scared and worried that our child wasn’t hitting milestones but this program has helped us and takes away so much stress.
