Dear Community Partners, 

As we say welcome to the change in weather and see the first flowers of spring bloom. We are reminded that April is the month of re-awakening! As a team we are celebrating many events, from the ability to do in-house intakes,to the beautiful weather that has allowed us to be together outside safely and the start of implementing Vroom into our program. At PCAP we understand that everything blooms in its own time, and we are just planting the seeds.

Thank you,

Family Education & Support Services Partners with Vroom and Washington DOH

Research tells us that early childhood is a critical period of brain development. To make the most of this critical time, Washington State Department of Health (DOH) has been sharing Vroom with partners across Washington since 2019. Vroom recognizes and reinforces the power of parents and caregivers to play a proactive role in children’s early brain development. It takes early brain science out of the lab and puts it in the hands of caregivers and the important adults in children’s lives, giving them positive, tested tips and activities. Vroom is available via an app, website, text message platform and print materials.
