Video: Stories from Zero to Five Missoula
The experiences young children have in these earliest years impact brain development and influence their future in a surprising array of areas, from future earning to physical and mental health, from graduation and academic achievement to healthy relationships and social-emotional well-being.
Zero to Five Missoula is creating a community-wide movement to make sure every resident of Missoula County understands the importance of this critical period of life, and to connect parents and caregivers to the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to help children thrive.
They build connections between organizations serving young children and families, using data to make better decisions about our programs and services. They involve parents and caregivers in decision-making and develop innovative solutions that remove barriers to change within our systems.
