The First 1,000 Days: Investing in WV Children When It Counts, is a new documentary by West Virginia Public Broadcasting's John Nakashima. It premiered Monday, February 2, at 9 P.M. on WV PBS. The documentary explains the science and techniques that build healthy brain architecture during those crucial early years. We get an insider's look at a few of the publicly supported childhood interventions, including In-Home Family Education, Birth to Three, Early Head Start, and Head Start. We meet families who are changing their children's lives through enthusiastic participation in these interventions. http://wvpublic.org/1000-days
