Raising Young Children in a New Country: Supporting Early Learning and Health Development


This illustrated handbook for immigrant families raising children between the ages of 0 and 5 is designed to provide families with basic information about early childhood development; age-appropriate discipline strategies; and the availability of services, support, and family engagement opportunities. It highlights the following six themes: family well-being; safety and protection; guidance and discipline; healthy brain development; early learning and school readiness; and connecting to early care and education. The handbook is also available in Arabic and will soon be available in Spanish.
