Congratulations to the 2014-2015 year’s winners of the Healthy Playground Makeover Sweepstakes and the Smart From The Start Awards!

Smart From The Start provides educators and families of children ages 3-5 with tools and resources need to provide their preschoolers with a strong foundation during the most crucial time in a child's development.

Too many children are at risk for serious diseases at an early age. They need resources and leadership to balance the energy they consume and the energy they expend. Energy Balance 101 is based on that foundation.
