A Growing Mind Won't Wait!

About the Event: Parents of young children from Branford, Madison and Guilford were invited to join Dr. Dia Flanagan of Madison Pediatrics, Priscilla Russo RN of Read to Grow, and Amy Townsley of United Way of Greater New Haven for a conversation on early childhood development and learning. The evening event informed parents about the importance of early development, children’s language and literacy development and provided them with information on the building blocks that will help ensure their children’s success in life.

When: Thursday, Aug. 14, 2008 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where: RJ Julia’s Booksellers, 2nd Floor, 768 Boston Post Road, Madison, CT

A 40-year study showed that every $1 invested in early education saves $17 down the road, with results including lower crime rates, fewer single parents and higher individual earnings and education levels.

Children with engaged, supported parents and quality preschool experiences are more likely to read at grade level by 3rd grade, score well on the 4th grade CT Mastery Test, avoid juvenile justice system, and stay in school.
