What is 1, 2, 3, Grow?
“1, 2, 3, Grow!” is a TV program about early childhood development for families of young children in 8 languages and cultures available on cable television stations across Massachusetts and on YouTube.
 
The program hosts, physicians and parents of young children who speak on these shows represent the languages and cultures of their audiences: English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Haitian-Creole, Portuguese, and Vietnamese. There is also a show in English focused on African-American concerns.
 
Using videos and advice from pediatricians and parents, the shows share information about healthy development and signs of concerns, and share where to get free resources and referrals to local providers in Massachusetts.
