Based on national and local data Alignment Rockford’s Healthy Starts team recognizes that increased parent-child engagement can significantly close the achievement gap for children in the Rockford community and is therefore seeking family/early childhood enrichment service providers to sign up to provide one or more hour-long parent/child playgroups at the pilot location of Rockford Housing Authority’s The Grove at Keith Creek for families with children ages birth to 5 to increase parent-child interactions and enhance healthy relationships. Playgroups will offer families an introduction to early childhood resources in a familiar setting and provide opportunities to develop comfortable, trusting relationships with providers.
