Building Blocks Series
The first 1000 days of a child’s life will influence his or her future academic achievement greatly. A child’s brain is only about 25% developed at birth and develops to about 85% at age 3, or about 1000 days old. Marathon County’s Early Years Coalition is taking proactive steps to ensuring parents have information and support for those first 1000 days so they raise great kids. The Wausau Daily Herald interviewed members of the coalition in the hopes of spreading the word about what parents can do to ensure their child is healthy, safe, ready for school, and great! Check out the links to other episodes and information to see how you can raise a great child in Marathon County.
 

New episodes will air Fridays until August 15. Visit http://www.wausaudailyherald.com/opinion/ for the latest videos.
