Department of Children and Families and Vroom!
On March 16, 2018, Robin Lamott Sparks, Executive Director of the Coalition for New Britain’s Youth, provided a presentation on Vroom Brain Building Moments at the New Britain Department of Children and Families All Staff Meeting.
Vroom is an interactive app that offers thousands of brain building activities for caregivers and children 5 and under. DCF Social Workers walked away with a sampling of activities in English, Spanish and Arabic on a key ring to take on their home visits to provide for the families they serve.
Also, the New Britain Office has placed information about Vroom on a bulletin board in the visitation area for families to learn about the program and an easy access plastic pouch for families to take the key ring of activities for use during their visits or to take home.
