Preschool Details: We introduced The Baby College® GRADS (Guardians Responding and Developing Strategies) program in 2010 to give graduates of The Baby College® an opportunity to deepen both their understanding of child development and their relationships with one another. Drawing on the most recent scientific research in infant and toddler brain development, GRADS staff help parents learn how to build strong interactions with their children, create a literacy-rich environment, and foster early language skills through weekly home visits and biweekly group meetings. While the training is intensive, the mood is light. Meetings have the informal, convivial feel of a neighborhood play group, with parents learning how to stimulate their children’s minds and growth through basic everyday activities. Indeed, any moment can be a teachable one-even a simple trip to the grocery store is a chance to explore, educate, and bond with their children. GRADS ensures that caregivers receive the education and support they need during the pivotal first three years of their children’s lives, working with them consistently until they transition to the next program in our pipeline, The Three-Year-Old Journey.
