Survey: What’s most helpful for your child’s first 1,000 days?

What programs and services could help families with babies in their first 1,000 days of life? Your answers will help inform the work of the Population Health Trust, in partnership with the Children’s Council of Skagit County.

If you are the parent or guardians of a child age 5 and younger, or are an expecting parent, we encourage you to take the 10-minute survey. The first 200 respondents will receive a $5 gift card.

The survey goes live Tuesday, Oct. 31, and will be open through Friday, Nov. 17: http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SkagitMCH.

All responses are anonymous, and will be tallied to give the community-wide workgroup better insight into the needs of families with young children, and how to better expand information and services.

The child and maternal health survey is part of a closer look at what families with young children face, and what programs and services could help families with babies in the first 1,000 days of life.  Safe, stable and nurturing relationships and environments are critical to healthy brain development. These relationships shape children’s physical, emotional, social, behavioral, and intellectual capacities.
