The early years of a child's life are very important to their success in school and life. Parents are also their child’s first and most important teacher. At Wayland Union Schools, we want to partner with you to support your parenting efforts, starting at birth!
Help Me Grow will help parents with children age birth to five years old prepare for school success. There are many resources, ideas and activities within this website to assist you in your parenting efforts.
If you would like a home visit from our Family Coach or have a concern about your child's development, please email Laurie Zywiczynski, firstname.lastname@example.org
For more information on our preschool and kindergarten programs, see the links to the right.
These early childhood materials were developed under a grant awarded by the Michigan Department of Education.
