The Winston-Salem Journal article, “Forsyth hospital, trust start new in-home nursing care program for newborns,” is an encouraging example of the growing level of community investment in early childhood development. Helping moms provide their babies the best possible start in life has long-term benefits for the child, the family, and our community. Building a better future in Forsyth County begins with providing a system of developmental opportunities for all children. Family Services’ new Early Head Start program for our youngest children, birth through 36 months, is critical to preparing children for success in Kindergarten and in life.
