Brain science tells us that the first three years of life are critical in developing the brain architecture that provides the framework for future learning. Parents and family members, through their daily interactions with the children in their lives, provide a foundation for a child’s healthy development. The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading (SCGLR) wants to help parents succeed in being their child’s first, best teacher.

SCGLR has assembled a texting service for parents with children from birth – third grade. This service – Everyday Hero – sends creative learning experiences to your phone. These experiences are based on suggestions from childcare experts, leading educators, parents, and brain scientists. Parents are Everyday Heroes because the things they do every day help children learn and grow.
