Early Childhood

The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical time for brain development.  It is during these early childhood years that skills for language, fine and gross motor, processing, and social/emotional develop.  Clinton County RESA’s Early Childhood System strives to provide the programs, information, and resources needed so that every child has a Great Start in life.  

Please see the Early Childhood Pages (below), for detailed information about Early Childhood programs and resources in Clinton County.
