The Prosper Waco Kindergarten Readiness work group and other community partners launched a community-wide awareness campaign around a free parenting tool called Vroom. Vroom provides daily, age-appropriate brain building activities for adults to do with infants, toddlers and preschoolers to help prepare each child for kindergarten. Each brain building activity is paired with a science-based background, therefore allowing the adult to understand how that specific activity is building the brain of the child. You can download the Vroom app on any smartphone, tablet or computer. If you or those you know don’t have access to the Internet, please give us a call at 254-741-0081.
Bringing awareness to our community through cross-sector partnerships is one great example of collective impact going on in Waco. Community partners are reinforcing the same message about Vroom, utilizing the backbone organization for support, communicating to the families they work with about the free parenting tool, and tracking how many families and children they talk about Vroom with.
Early childhood providers, community organizations and community members can all help bring awareness to our community-click here to find out how!
