Welcome to Unity Point's Birth-To-Three Program!

The Birth-to-Three program provides support, information, and encouragement to families to help their child develop at the most crucial time of their life.  Through Home Visits, our program provides early, continuous, and comprehensive child development information and family support services to help families build a strong foundation for learning to prepare children for later school success.


Developmental, vision, and hearing screenings and Home Visits are provided to families designed to help parents learn about the growth and development of their infants and toddlers. 


Weeble Wobbles Playtime is offered monthly. Explore our art materials, play with a wide variety of toys, experience the playground, sing and dance, learn about fun places to explore in the community, and enjoy the support of group discussions about the joys and challenges of life with infants and toddlers. 


Parents of infants and toddlers face many of the same challenges and appreciate support and encouragement of others that have met those challenges successfully.  Monthly parenting workshops offer families an opportunity to discuss a variety of parenting information, such as toilet training, child guidance and discipline, nutrition, etc.  This allows caregivers to be involved in a support group and provides them with important child development information.


A monthly newsletter is provided to our families to keep them informed of activities that are planned within the program. Parenting and child development information is also available through our lending library for families.


Please contact Kim Davidson at 529-4151 ext. 209 or if you have any questions or would like any more information regarding the Birth-to-Three program.
