Early is good, earlier is better
Video Toolkit & Topic Guide
The Right from the Start video series includes four short videos that support our vision to help build a strong early childhood system in Connecticut. We offer a complete video toolkit and four topic guides to facilitate hosting screenings of the RFTS videos.
RFTS community screenings offer an opportunity to bring people together to converse and identify the best approaches to improving our state's early childhood system. Hosting community conversations is a proven method of finding shared local solutions.
We offer four toolkits to facilitate hosting screenings of these videos. This toolkit includes a topic guide to specifically support discussions focused on building a foundation for learning and development during a child’s first 1000 days.
The toolkit includes the following documents as supplements to the screenings and community conversations:
|Full-color Printable Brochure|
