Let’s Grow Kids campaign - Raising of America Conversations about the importance of early childhood (Events taking place at the end of October)
The Department of Mental Health is one of 16 statewide organizations and agencies collaborating with the Let’s Grow Kids campaign on Raising of America Conversations—a series of events featuring a 30-minute sneak peek of the powerful new Raising of America documentary with a community conversation afterwards about the importance of early childhood.
Currently, 40 to 50% of Vermont children arrive at kindergarten unprepared. Why is this happening, what are the consequences, and how can we build a firm foundation for our children’s future success in school, relationships and the workforce?
These events will occur during the last two weeks in October. More details about the event and how to RSVP can be found at: http://www.letsgrowkids.org/raising-america-conversations.
