BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – It’s time to register your kindergartners for Brevard Public Schools’ upcoming school year and BPS’s Priscilla DeNino talked to Space Coast Daily about all of the resources available for parents, including the Thrive by Five program and upcoming Kindergarten registration.

Brevard Public Schools announced the official launch of the Thrive by Five initiative by Superintendent Dr. Mark Mullins last November to provide a pathway for every family in Brevard to learn the importance of early literacy beginning at birth.
This program connects Brevard families to resources that promote readiness for school and set the stage for lifelong learning success.
During the announcement, major local healthcare systems joined forces to share their support for this initiative.
“I want to thank essential partners in this effort and for their commitment, this would not be possible without them. Our healthcare partners at Health First, Parrish and Steward, your leadership in this community is reflected every day,” said Mullins.
Each healthcare system selected a representative to speak about their support and the importance of a program that cares for the children and families in our community with a holistic approach.
“Reading regularly to young children stimulates optimal patterns of brain development and strengthens parent-child relationships at a critical time in child development which in turn, builds language, literacy and social-emotional skills that last a lifetime,” said Dr. Timothy Laird, Chief Medical Officer at Health First Medical Group.
The Thrive by Five website hosts a variety of resources and helpful information at the click of a button for families in Brevard County.
Together, education, healthcare and businesses are partnering together to ensure that every child in our community can Thrive by Five.
