First Impressions of Routt County works to ensure that young children will be provided adequate resources and quality programs to promote healthy development and school readiness. The First Impressions Council strengthens the community's collaborative web of resources where children and families experience dignity and a sense of belonging.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF ROUTT COUNTY COMMITTEES
* Children's Health Advocacy Team's focus is to strengthen the county wide network of health services for all young children
* Parent Education Committee works to increase availability of effective parent education opportunities
* School Readiness Committee's focus is that Children will begin school ready to learn and schools will be prepared to receive them
First Impressions believes that it only makes sense to spend money on a child's education when it will do the most good - during the first 5 years of life when brain development is taking place most rapidly. This is why early childhood care and education - before Kindergarten - is so important.
