“Rochester Childfirst Network is an agency serving children with and without special learning needs. We will continue to develop a social and emotional resource center for parents and embed information about developmentally appropriate and evidence-based strategies for social and emotional learning into all of our parent engagement opportunities. Our goal is for all adults in our preschoolers' lives to share the same understanding of how to relate to children most effectively to promote social and emotional learning and reduce the frequency and severity of challenging behaviors. This year, we hope to include our Family Child Care coordinator on our team to expand our reach in the community.”
