Welcome to Plant the Seed of Learning

Plant the Seed of Learning provides resources for families with children ages birth to 2.
Our goal is to educate families about brain development and the importance of education beginning at birth.

Mission:

We educate and support parents prior to their child’s entrance to kindergarten about medical and academic milestones. As a collective, we link collaborative efforts among school districts, early learning centers, and local hospital medical professionals in order to support systemic change.

Vision:

All students that participate in the Plant the Seed of Learning sessions will be 100% ready for kindergarten.

Goal:

We will change the perceptions about education:

Education Begins at Conception.

We will provide families with resources that include educational brochures and developmentally appropriate materials that connect to each of our sessions.

The take-home materials will encourage interaction and bonding between caregivers and their children.
