Help Me Grow

Did you know about the Help Me Grow Aspire Parent Group? This meeting is centered on the fact that friends, family members, neighbors and community members can provide emotional support, help solve problems, offer parenting advice and give concrete assistance to one another. A representative from Help Me Grow always attends so parents can ask any questions they might have about their child's development. Refer any of your families to attend with their kids! Meetings are held every third Wednesday at 11:15am at the Utah County Health Department, room 1600, prior to the Ready to Learn Class.
