Vroom is a series of creative tools and materials that inspire families to turn everyday moments into brain building moments. Developed with input from parents, early childhood experts, neuroscientists, and community leaders, Vroom has the potential to positively impact the early years of children across the country.

Impact Monadnock’s Family Supports Project Team has been working hard to identify community partners and organizations who can build relationships with parents, families and child caregivers so that Vroom’s tools and materials can be distributed.

Vroom had its first mini-launch at the 3rd Annual Baby & Toddler Expo on April 2nd, and another launch event will take place at the The Children & the Arts Festival on May 20th.
