Bright Start
 Bright Start logo
Seeking to impact children at a younger age and to start connecting families with resources even earlier, PEAK launched the Bright Start in Pottstown initiative. Bright Start brings together agencies and programs that work directly with infants and toddlers or with families with children from the prenatal stages to three years old.

The focus of the partnership is to increase the awareness of services for prenatal, infants, and toddlers and their families in Pottstown; to identify gaps in services for the targeted age group; and to increase the awareness of the importance of the youngest years in a child’s life.

For more information on the Bright Start initiative, contact the PEAK Coordinator at 610-970-6655. To learn more about the importance of the early years, visit www.zerotothree.org.
