Building Blocks For a Healthy Future

Welcome to SAMHSA‛s Building Blocks for a Healthy Future, where parents, caregivers, and teachers of children aged 3 to 6 can find lots of great tips, materials, and ideas for spending time with their children and learning together. Learn more about our mission.

Parent involvement is just as important to young children as it is to older children. Visit the Family section to find out how to use positive parenting to help your children grow up making healthy decisions. Here you will find ideas for conversation starters, positive discipline, and fun family activities.

Preschool teachers are always looking for creative curriculum to keep children engaged and interested in learning. Visit the Educators section to find teaching tools to help with your preschool curriculum development and get ideas for classroom games and activities that preschoolers will love!

Work with the children in your life as they learn problem-solving and communication skills, and practice positive reinforcement as you guide them through the Children section. This section includes children's games, songs, and activities that will have children laughing and learning for hours!
