Rooted In Relationships

Rooted in Relationships is working to make sure that every infant, toddler, and young child (up to 8 years old) in our district will experience positive social and emotional development.

Currently implemented in Saline and Jefferson Counties, local coaches support early child care providers as they implement the Pyramid Model, an evidence-based framework that promotes social, emotional, and behavioral competence in young children. In addition, community stakeholder groups develop and implement long-range plans to support healthy early childhood social-emotional development through various parent trainings, family activities, and increasing awareness of resources for children and families in the community.
