Empowering parents of young children to raise healthy and happy families.
Nurses & Nurturing Nurseries
Having a baby can leave parents both overjoyed and overwhelmed. It takes a village to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child, and VNA is proud to be an expert resource parents can rely on. VNA offers four voluntary home visitation programs for at-risk families with infants or small children. Our goal is to empower parents to maintain self-sufficient, healthy, happy families.
The Growing Great Kids™ curriculum is used during home visits with families. It is a highly-interactive, strengths-based approach that builds nurturing parent-child relationships and promotes parenting skills that support the early learning and development of infants and young children.
Families participating in any of the programs have these additional services available to them:
Catch Visiting Nurse Association experts on Mom’s Everyday.
Our own Mary Foley was featured on Mom’s Everyday talking about the importance of reading. Make reading fun every day with a good book! The first five years are especially important to read to your child because that is when 90 percent of brain development is happening – you can even read to your children before they are born!
Kaiya Mears from VNA was also on Mom’s Everyday. She talked about breastfeeding, the sacred hour, skin-to-skin contact and all of the great resources that are out there for new mothers!
