The purpose of Thriving at Three is to assure that Latino immigrant children in Greensboro have a positive and strong foundation from birth to age three. The CNNC accomplishes this goal by delivering long-term at-home services to at-risk families until the child’s third year – partnering with the parents to provide direct intervention, parenting education, group meetings, case management, referrals, and care coordination for up to the child’s third year.


To educate parents about their child’s developmental stages
To support families as they help their children reach their full potential
To provide positive parental skills
To ensure early detection of developmental delays and provide proper referral

Currently, the program is working with 40 families in Greensboro, North Carolina. Children’s developmental status is assessed using Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ). Some parents receive the Crianza con Cariño Curriculum to increase their knowledge in child development and parent-child interaction.

“Familias Triunfantes” group sessions are conducted to support the parents and their children.

Individuals who love working with small children up to the age of three can volunteer with our Thriving at Three program. Thriving at Three seeks to build a strong developmental foundation for the infants and very young children of Latino immigrants through parental education, support, and care coordination. Volunteers from several backgrounds, especially those with social work, family development or educational experience are well suited to assist the program.
