TEXT STUDY

At the Sabes JCC we want to provide educational resources for families. Our text studies provide summaries of books, latest research articles, and resources connected to child development and developmental milestones. Each month's text study will focus on one topic, providing you with an overview of the topic as it relates to young children and practical strategies to use at home. Enjoy!
