Are you the parent or caregiver of a child under 3 years old? Before 3 to Succeed offers a wealth of information and parenting tips on social media and Oakland Family Services’ website that can help you make sure your child grows bigger and stronger every week.

Before 3 to Succeed provides parents – a child’s first and most important teacher - information aimed at improving the lives and healthy development of children from birth to 3 years old. Research shows that children who have nurturing and supportive experiences during their early years are better prepared for school and life.

Before 3 to Succeed’s Facebook page and Twitter features stories on everything from ways to calm your fussy baby, to tips on reading with an infant or toddler, to how to handle temper tantrums. You’ll also find a series of videos, which can be viewed on the Before 3 to Succeed YouTube channel as well.

If you are wondering whether your child is developing on track, go to the Before 3 to Succeed web page and take the Ages and Stages Questionnaire. Here you also will find Developmental Milestone infographics by age as well as videos explaining what you can expect for your child at different stages.
