Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Ms. Carrie Sullivan
FACE Coordinator

As parents, we are always questioning ourselves about our parenting strategies or the development of our child. Over the next few weeks, I will be finding articles that I hope will answer those questions for you.

Remember, we are always trying our best as parents and yes your child is doing fine! PLEASE, if you would like more information in a certain area or have questions about parenting or child development, please email or call me.  We can set up a time to go over your questions.

For this week, let's take a look at  child development from birth to 16 years-old. 

Have a great week!
