For father Bryan Cruzado, Believe 2 Become is all about Baby Scholars, where his son learned how to practice sharing, recognize his ABCs, and learn new words … all by age 3.
Baby Scholars is based on the research of Dr. Susan Landry, founder and director of the Children’s Learning Institute at University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. Research into the environmental factors that promote early cognitive growth and development led her to develop the Center for Improving the Readiness of Children for Learning and Education (CIRCLE) framework, the foundation for the Baby Scholars model.
Through home visits, providers Arbor Circle, Early Learning Neighborhood Collaborative, and Strong Beginnings share with parents proven methods for helping very young children learn. Children who have participated as infants, toddlers, and preschoolers start kindergarten with a stronger foundation for success.
