Live 5 News and The Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative want to help put your children on the path to academic success!
The Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative (TCCC) is a community-wide movement focused on improving education outcomes from birth to workforce readiness. Every child deserves a chance to experience the best that life has to offer. The Tri-County Cradle-to-Career Collaborative is widespread and long-term with a commitment to our community, our children and our future.
You can start by reading to your child early and often, at least 15 minutes each day. Did you know reading to babies stimulates early brain development? Make it interactive by storytelling and asking questions. Encourage them to point, touch and even hold the book!
