DECATUR – It's a day of celebration at Decatur's Baby TALK. Today marks Baby TALK Head Start's fifth anniversary. It is also Head Start's 50th year.
Baby TALK Head Start is one of Baby TALK's many programs.
The organizations help children in low income families develop skills designed to help them excel in school and in later life.
“We hope that we are contributing to the building of a healthy future,” said Claudia Quigg, Executive Director of Baby TALK. “What happens to human beings in the early years of their lives creates the brain architecture that they'll live with the for the rest of their lives.”
Baby TALK Early Head Start, as part of the celebration, also unveiled its brand new children's “Natural Playscape” outdoor recreation area. It is located at the Baby TALK Early Head Start Center.
