Board Meeting Minutes

 

Parents are the most important factor in children's neural growth, skill formation and physical health in the first three years and beyond.

68% of families served by Sixpence-funded programs face multiple challenges to parents' effectiveness in guiding the early development of their infants and toddlers.

With the help of Sixpence, Nebraska communities are helping parents grow as more capable, skilled educators and caregivers, putting more children on a path to success in school and life.
