The best time to help children do well in life is during their first three years of life.   The First 1,000 Days:  Investing In WV Children When It Counts is a new documentary from WV Public Broadcasting that explores the impact of this time in a child's life. 

Here is a short excerpt from the full-length documentary about an Early Head Start program in Wheeling.   Parents can begin with Early Head Start during their pregnancy.  Children can begin as early as age 3 months.  There are nine Early Head Start Programs in WV – serving approximately 812 pregnant mothers/infant and toddlers in 22 counties in WV.

The First 1,000 Days premieres Monday, February 2, at 9 P.M. on WV PBS.
