About The Event

In infant and early childhood mental health, the focus of interventions is most often relationships rather than the individual child, because children develop in the context of relationships. Research shows that infants and young children who consistently engage in nurturing, responsive relationships with caregivers; and who are developing in safe and secure environments are more likely to develop strong social-emotional health. Strong social-emotional health is directly linked to healthy development in other essential areas, including physical health, cognitive skills, language and literacy, social skills, and school readiness. The Leap Coalition of Larimer County invites you to join us for this playful community conversation to learn how you can support nurturing relationships and attachment for parents, caregivers and their young children, and for each other.
