My First 8 Years is a website set up by The Valley Early Childhood Regional Council as a resource linking parents to services in the area, news, events and information on child development. We also have a Community Blog written by members of our community who work with our children.
Our goal is to ensure that all children from birth through age eight are healthy, safe and successful lifelong learners, valued by their families and our diverse communities.
We want you to get involved!
Parents: speak on behalf of your children by taking part in a focus group or attending a committee meeting and join us directly in the planning process. We want to hear from you on what you feel are important issues in your family.
Providers: help us with identification and integration of resources and services from the community to benefit parents and children.
Business Owners or Community Residents: become community champions and promote the goals and work of the Early Childhood Councils. Help us build a strong community by showing support for schools and families through promoting our work in early education, health and family issues.
