A Newsletter from Baby's Space   July, 2013   Volume 4, Issue 7

Baby's Space is a holistic, research-based approach to infant through 3rd grade education, adolescent mental health services and support for children and families residing in poverty and violence.

Dear Friends,

Since Baby's Space began, we've been spreading the word about the importance of early experience and seeing things from the baby's point of view. That's what we practice each day at Baby's Space. And now, we can spread the word through a new book, "Emotional Readiness. How Early Experiences and Mental Health Predict School Success."

I wrote the book because the mental health of babies is often overlooked. While we're quick to ensure that we are teaching the ABCs and 123s, we often miss that social emotional development sets the foundation for learning.

 

Getting my new book in the hands of policy makers and childcare professionals is just the beginning. We recently hosted a Rally4Babies event at Baby's Space to put the spotlight on increasing funding for early childhood education. It's an exciting time as we make changes that will impact future generations. Thanks for joining us on our march. It's going to be an exciting journey - from the baby's point of view.

 

Best Regards,

 

Terrie Rose

Founder and CEO

"I enjoy working with the kids because they are so happy to be there. When they are called up for their awards (like completing homework) they're excited. The family dinners are always fun." Sophie, student
