Success Stories

My Parent Educator has helped me begin to read more with my children. I am looking forward to each visit and the things I can learn.

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.

“We are back in my hometown of Richmond again this weekend. This morning we joined Birth to Five & Hayes Arboretum for a great program. We listened to a story, took a hike, & learned all about our forest friends. Birth to Five is a phenomenal organization that serves kids in Wayne County… They also have regular community programs like today’s. The kids got to explore & learn. Plus they sent us home with a copy of the story they read today.”
