Carson Baby Initiative
Carson Baby Initiative – Educators at GH Carson Elementary School in Pennsauken turned their fears into action by designing the Carson Baby Initiative. Many teachers see developmental issues in their students that could have been avoided if only they would have been identified and addressed at an earlier age. Teachers spend their own time volunteering to run this initiative. It brings together parents or caregivers, their babies and older siblings, to help make school a more positive learning environment. The parents gain valuable support, the siblings learn how to help their younger brothers and sisters, and the infants get a head start on a lifetime of learning.
