OUR MISSION

TO STRENGTHEN THE CULTURE OF PARENTING IN Baton Rouge

An initiative of Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, Cradle to K works to support Baton Rouge parents by connecting them to a network of local resources and parent communities. The ultimate vision of Cradle to K is to equip parents with the support and tools to be confident as they raise their children and prepare them for Kindergarten.

Cradle to K’s vision is rooted in the initiative’s three parenting pillars—Patience, Curiosity and Conversation—and the belief that by providing parents opportunities to authentically reflect and engage with other caregivers, they will develop healthy daily habits with their children that remind them to think critically about what it means to be a parent in today’s world.
