Former President Bill Clinton joined representatives from Too Small to Fail and the Baltimore County Public Library to dedicate new panels at the Talking is Teaching themed playground on Monday.
Too Small to Fail is a joint initiative of the Clinton Foundation and the Opportunity Institute that leads a campaign to promote the importance of early brain and language development.
"You can never know what is in the head of a child, you can never know what these kids are dreaming now, what they are imagining. But you can do a lot to make sure that whatever they imagining, they can live, said Clinton."
The dedicated panels integrate learning with play using conversational prompts that encourage parents to talk, read, and sing with their children.
The panels were built through a partnership between Too Small to Fail, Shane’s Inspiration, and Landscape Structures.
So far 82 early-literacy themed playgrounds have been launched.
