Nurture Adult-Child Relationships to Build Healthy Learning Brains
Through a series of video-based courses, learn the most important skills, anchored in talking, reading and playing to help support each child’s healthy brain and emotional growth, develop language skills and lay the foundation for reading.
We recommend getting started by watching the B-5 portion of our Town Hall event and our accompanying introduction videos, then following along with each unit.

Our 2020 Promise
When you join the Cox Campus community, you make a promise – to engage each and every child as your conversational partner and give them the language and literacy skills they need to decide their own future. Click below to learn about our Promise to all children.
Our words have the power to decide whether a child’s day will be filled with wondrous discovery and excitement or with dreaded anxiety and discouragement. With every interaction, adults can contribute to a learning ecosystem where children thrive.
The Gift of Home Language
Dual Language Learners (DLLs) are children who are learning and developing in more than one language. DLLs are eager to share their gift with others in their classroom community, but most importantly, they rely on this valuable gift to access the knowledge they have gained about the world and to continue to grow and learn as they develop their English. As educators, we must value this gift and bring it into the classroom.
