Early Learning Directory - Clallam County

Please watch this tab for a NEW Searchable Early Learning Directory! If you want to have your program included, send request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Our goal with this directory is to help families with young children by publishing a list of early learning programs available and learning resources within Clallam County. This list is for the purpose of informing families of available programs. It is not intended to recommend any particular program, nor is it any kind of endorsement for those contained within. Adults need to determine if a given program meets the criteria they believe are important for their child. Programs provide us with the information contained in this directory.

Resource: What is epigenetics?

 14 HOURS AGO

How does epigenetics relate to child development? New resource from the Harvard Center on the Developing Child explains.

Science tells us that the interactions between genes and environment shape human development. “Epigenetics” is an emerging area of scientific research that shows how environmental influences—including the experiences we provide for children—actually affect the expression of their genes. This means that the old idea that genes are "set in stone" has been disproven. Nature vs. Nurture is no longer a debate. It's nearly always both!

To understand more about epigenetics and how it affects child development and long-term health outcomes, check out this new infographic from the Harvard Center on the Developing Child: https://developingchild.harvar...o-child-development/
