The Get Ready to GROW bus - Serving community and partners
Young children in the City of Rochester and surrounding region now have access to free developmental checks, or screenings, that can help families better understand their child’s strengths and possible needs for healthy development. Only 20-30% of children with health, behavioral, and development problems are identified and receive appropriate interventions prior to entering school. Learn more about Get Ready to GROW
We stand and speak for racial justice and public health equity - together
Children’s Institute is committed to work towards the elimination of systemic and institutional racism, individual racism, and implicit bias. We don't stand silent. Silent isn't neutral. We stand and speak for racial justice and public health equity – together. Families with children in communities of color demand allies who support, understand, recognize, and transform personal discomfort into decisive action that promotes lasting change around these inequities.

We love to see CI celebrated in the news. Eagle News, a newspaper based out of Central New York, highlighted Primary Project this past month. All four elementary schools in the East Syracuse Minoa Central School District showcase Primary Project and have had positive experiences with the program.
As we enter the month of February, we are presented with an opportunity to reflect, celebrate, and honor the rich heritage and contributions of black people. It is with great enthusiasm that we acknowledge and observe Black History.
