Health Capsule - Early Learning GPS (Guiding Parents Smoothly)
Visit the Early Learning GPS (Guiding Parents Smoothly) website. Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children campaign developed it. The GPS offers information for parents of young children about helping their children learn and grow.
GPS is interactive and easy to use. Families receive simple tips and links to reliable resources. Topics include child development, nutrition, physical activity, social-emotional health, and advice about common childhood events such as visiting the doctor.
Thousands of people have visited the GPS site since its launch in January 2013. The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning GPS reviewed all the content. Forty focus groups across the state reviewed it too. The reviewers thought the website information was excellent.
