Your Child's
Mental Health

It’s easy to know your child needs help dealing with a fever or a broken bone, but mental health problems can be harder to identify. The tricky part of parenting is knowing the kinds of behaviors and moods that are usual for the stage of development your child is in – and when your child has gone beyond the norm and needs help.

We warmly welcome you and your child to Greenbelt Children's Center!

At the Greenbelt Children's Center, we encourage parent participation. We believe it is important for parents and teachers to work together, as this benefits the child. We have an open door policy and parents may visit any time.

You are your child’s first teacher! There are many ways you can help your child be ready for school. One way is to help your child with language & literacy. Learning to express needs & wants by talking, understanding others through listening and knowing about reading and writing are examples of language & literacy skills.

Learning these skills begins at birth. Here are five important areas: building language skills, learning about books and print, developing comprehension (understanding), learning about letters and learning about sounds in words.

When you support your child in these areas, he/she will be more likely to do well when starting school. Children who easily learn to read and write have had many experiences with books and language before school begins. As a parent, you can help build your child’s language and literacy skills and abilities. We are happy to be your partner in this and will offer parent learning opportunities so that you will become more skilled at being your child’s first teacher.
