Best Start for Babies program, Early Childhood Councils of Larimer and Weld counties ($200,000 over two years)
The North Council has set its sights on early childhood education for the past several years. To make community-wide changes in this area, the Council brought together the Early Childhood Councils of Larimer and Weld counties to create a cross-county program to prepare children for life-long learning. Started in 2010, the program operates 10-week sessions of intensive, classroom-based education to teach parents about early childhood development and how to best stimulate infants and toddlers to prepare them for traditional schooling.
