Maryland State Department of Education creates new child development resources

Healthy-Beginnings-child-developmentThe Maryland State Department of Education will kick off its new Healthy Beginnings initiative on Wenesday, May 2, with a story time at Oxon Hill Library in Prince George’s County.

Healthy Beginnings is a series of booklets and an accompanying website created for parents, caregivers and others who have a hand in raising children. The booklets, Healthy Beginnings: Supporting Development and Learning from Birth through Three Years of Age, and accompanying website, marylandhealthybeginnings.org, were developed to ensure that the people who care for infants and young children have the knowledge and resources to support and encourage children during the ongoing process of growth and learning. The Maryland Public Libraries in collaboration with the Maryland State Department of Education’s Divisions of Library Services, Early Childhood Development, and Special Education/Early Intervention Services will distribute the booklets at all public libraries throughout the state.

Following story time at Oxon Hill Library at 10 a.m. on Wendsday, May 2, families can pick up some of the booklets and can use the library’s computers to view the Healthy Beginnings website.

Visitors to the website can download a development domains chart or learn about some activities that promote early learning in children.
