Successful Start at School/

MONTREAL, Oct. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Many experts agree that the first five years of a child's life can set the stage for his or her future. The Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation is working to promote a better understanding of child development from birth through five years of age, as well as the importance of a parent's role in the successful and comfortable start of a child's school years.

André Chagnon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Lucie and André Chagnon Foundation, cordially invites members of the media to the launch of a major campaign to raise awareness of the importance of the early childhood years and the value of the role parents play.
