New Parents and Caregivers
A free program with five fun, powerful ways to build your baby’s brain.
Did you know that 80% of brain growth happens during the first three years of life? You can help your child be successful in these early stages by following five simple science-based principles known as The Basics:
The Houston Health Department has teamed up with Children's Museum Houston to bring this this initiative to Houston parents for FREE. Through a series of free “fun-shops” in neighborhoods around Houston, new parents are encouraged to practice The Basics and build an early foundation for their children to be able to read, speak, solve problems, do well in school, and have positive relationships later in life.
Children’s Museum Houston and My20 KTXH are flipping for literacy! Join CMH Educators for FLIP Time as they explore some of our favorite books and lead interactive activities you can try at home.
