we help parents become their first & best teachers 


Did you know your child’s brain is mostly developed by age 5?

Learning starts long before school. From birth, kids are building the important skills — social, emotional, language, physical, and intellectual — they need for life. Loving, nurturing relationships matter most. Parents, grandparents, and caregivers can use everyday moments as learning moments. 

Bornlearning Academy will help families learn how to strengthen their child’s foundation for success in school, work, and life. It’s a series of 6 free family workshops that provide parents with tools and resources to turn everyday activities into early learning moments. The workshops are at night in local schools with food and child care provided. Plus, you’ll get lots of fun activities to do with your child to help them learn — anywhere, anytime.

This program in sponsored by North Central Health Services and Community Commitment to Education
