    The Early Care and Education Office coordinates several programs that involve families with young children, ages prenatal to eight years.  Services include parent education programs, school readiness initiatives, birthday books, free preschool programs, parent leadership opportunities, hearing, vision and developmental screening.  We also coordinate Van Buren's Great Start Collaborative charged with "supporting every child in Van Buren to be safe, healthy, and eager to succeed in school and in life".
    "Pay attention to the young, and make them just
    as good as possible."
