The following programs and services are administered by Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County.
Parents as Teachers provides parent education and family support to families throughout pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten. Through home visits and group meetings parent educators share child development/parenting information and parent-child activities that promote growth and learning.
The Quality Enhancement Program provides assistance to licensed early learning centers and family child care homes to improve and enhance the quality of child care offered, and to increase their star-rated license. The program provides training on the Environment Rating Scales, pre-assessment, consultation and development of a 6-month action plan, one-on-one technical assistance, training, post-assessment, and assistance with star-rated license application.
Raising A Reader is a take-home Red Book Bag program that provides children and families with quality books and knowledge about the importance of early literacy. By promoting "book cuddling" among families, Raising A Reader is strengthening relationships and building early reading skills in preschool children.
Reach Out and Read is an early literacy initiative that uses the research that we know about the special relationship between medical providers and their patients to promote the early literacy development of children ages birth to 5 years and their families.
