5 Steps to Five is an early child development parenting program now in its fifth year that focuses on disadvantaged families in Port Chester, starting at birth. The program coaches parents on ways to help their children prepare cognitively, verbally, emotionally, physically and socially for success first in Head Start and Kindergarten and ultimately, in life. In just five years over 270 different families have attended the Saturday morning classes. Parents indicate they are now reading to their children at home almost five times as frequently as they did before entering the program.
