The TTSH Basics is a series of community partnerships consisting of organizations and individuals coming together to ensure that young children enter school ready to learn and are on a similar academic level of their peers. Learn about the basics at our community kick-off event Friday, May 17, 2019 at 8 am at the Warner Library.

Since 80 percent of brain growth happens by the time a child reaches their 3rd birthday and achievement gaps are set by the age of two, these first years of a child's life are crucial for learning.  Research shows that children who enter school behind, never really catch up.

 

The science is clear about the kind of early childhood experiences that will prepare children to be successful when they reach school age. These experiences are the Basics.  The Basics are 5 fun, simple, and effective principles that can be done as part of everyday life. 

The Basics are: Maximize love & manage stress * Talk, sing, and point, * Count group, and compare * Explore through movement and play,*Read and not just read but read and discuss stories.
