Birth to Five

​​​​​​

The human brain undergoes an amazing period of growth in the first few years and is influenced by a child’s experiences, environments, and relationships.  Getting ready for school begins at birth. 

Southeast Cornerstone offers two important programs to support families in this important work:  1.  Early Learning (ECIP) and 2.  Regional KidsFirst.

1.  Early Learning / Early Childhood Intervention Program (ECIP)

For children (ages birth to five) and their families, free of charge, we provide...

· Home and/or center-based visits with families.
· Developmental screening.
· Support to parents as they set goals for their child.
· Referrals to other agencies.
· Play-based programming specific to the child's needs.
· Support in transitioning children  into Kindergarten, Prekindergarten or other suitable programs.
· Support, encouragement, and resources for parents.

“It’s a great program I didn't realize existed. It helps confirm that your parenting skills are in fact proper, and if you lack knowledge, help is there.”
