ERDC program information for Parents and Providers

Exciting tools for parents with young children!

DHS Child Care program is partnering with the Early Learning Division of the Department of Education in promoting Vroom – Brain Building Moments. Vroom is an early learning initiative with tools that help parents with young children in their first five years of life to develop the foundation of learning.

Vroom toolkits will be dispersed to the field offices in the month of August 2016 that will consist of flyers and posters to promote Vroom. The kit will also include tools to give parents which includes a Tip Card Set and stickers to utilize each day to promote learning.


There will be a small supply of items from the Vroom toolkit that you may order through Distribution. Use the DHS 8100 Forms Order Sheet to order additional supplies.


There will be a link on the DHS website for Vroom for parents to access. Parents can download the Daily Vroom app from Vroom’s website. The site also has helpful Science and Facts, Tools and Activities. The tools and activities are available to give parents brain-building tips that will help them in their important role as a parent to support brain development.


Watch a short YouTube video explaining Vroom.
