I’ve had the great fortune to be invited to do consulting work for Detroit Public Television, supporting contracts for Michigan’s Early Childhood Investment Corporation, and a related Ages and Stages Campaign.
I’ve been saying the content we’ve been working on is for adults about children, and over the last two years, I’ve been so impressed with the people I’ve met who are working on raising the standards of care for our youngest community members and helping better educate parents on how to prepare their children for kindergarten.
As the mother of a happy, healthy seven-year old, I often reflect on how lucky I am to have a supportive family environment to raise her in, with a loving partner and father and a grandmother she gets to spend time with regularly.
I hope the PSAs captured some of those precious childhood moments that are so endearing about infants and toddlers, help to direct people to resources available in our community, and maybe provide a little tip or idea about how to create a good learning environment for a child in one’s care.
