Early Childhood Development
There is no more important time in a person’s life than those formative years between the ages of birth and 5. MSU Extension recognizes that and is focusing their early childhood development services in three dynamic areas. It shines the spotlight on emerging literacy through its ABC’s of Early Literacy program, helping parents and caregivers give little ones a jump start on reading. MSUE also provides tools to help parents and caregivers get children ready for school. Finally, MSU Extension has programs and events that promote social and emotional health in young children.
