Debbie Curley, UA AZ Cooperative Ext., SCC, says First Things First, with the contracted assistance of the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, has opened “family resource centers” in Nogales and Rio Rico. She says programs offered include everything a family with a child under age 5 might need – playgroups, activities for early brain development, vision and hearing checks, parent education and support groups, and perhaps computers and English and GED classes. She says the focus is on getting kids ready to learn when they enter kindergarten and first grade.
