The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her health and development. Healthy development means that children of all abilities, including those with special health care needs, are able to grow up where their social, emotional and educational needs are met. Having a safe and loving home and spending time with family―playing, singing, reading, and talking―are very important. Proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep also can make a big difference.
As a parent you give your children a good start in life—you nurture, protect and guide them. Parenting is a process that prepares your child for independence. As your child grows and develops, there are many things you can do to help your child. These links will help you learn more about your child’s development, positive parenting, safety, and health at each stage of your child’s life.
Prevention Works! A Community Coalition of Clallam County has identified the need for increased child care options in Clallam County. We have heard many times "We need more ChildCare". We will be sharing resources and opportunities to expand child care options in Clallam County. Here are some resources!
Early Achievers What is "Early Achievers"?
Early Achievers improves the quality of early care and learning in Washington State. What does that mean for families?
Early Achievers provides evidence-based information about facility quality to help families find high-quality child care and early learning programs.
Participation is free for providers so there is no additional cost to families.
By participating in Early Achievers, early learning professionals show a commitment to improving quality so you can feel confident about your child care choice.
Choosing child care is an important decision. Families deserve to know their children are receiving care that promotes their unique skills and cultures, and supports the development of the whole child.
