Great Start...Pathways to Success is for parents of infants and toddlers in Seminole County. It promotes parent education and helps parents develop essential early literacy skills in their children

What the Research Says

Great Start

80-85 percent of the core brain structure is formed within the first three years of life. In the first five years, the brain makes 700 neural connections every second! Children who are introduced to books and early literacy skills from birth are more likely to succeed when they go to school. Babies need warm, loving, caring interaction with their parents.
