I developed a resource tool that provided Seaside Emergency Response social workers and their clients with educational information about child development with age appropriate expectation for children 0-5 years of age; and also a library of community agencies that provide parental/caregiver support. I used the concepts from the resource tool to create a community website called Thrive Zero to Five. The goal of the website is to help the children of Monterey County to thrive from the ages of zero to five by helping parents/caregivers to enhance their knowledge of their childâ€™s developmental ages and stages and to provide resources to help them build a support system.
