  • The early learner

    When a child is born, the last thing on parents’ minds is their baby’s first day of school.
    In fact, many parents try not to think about it because it’s a sign that their baby boy or girl is growing up.
    But, preparing for that day is crucial to a child’s development, and the Marion County Public School System is making some changes and trying some new initiatives to try and reach children long before they walk into school on their first day.
