I Am A Parent/Caregiver


The Basics Palmetto offers a variety of ideas and resources to support you in giving your infant, toddler, or preschooler a great start in life. Our approach is organized around five strategies for parents and caregivers that we call The Basics Principles.

Visit our toolkit for parents and caregivers, with videos and tips for applying The Basics Principles in everyday moments.

We hope you will consider yourself a member of The Basics Movement. Our goal is to involve as many families as possible, so please spread the word!
