What is 1, 2, 3, Grow?
“1, 2, 3, Grow!” is a TV program about early childhood development for families of young children in eight languages and cultures available on YouTube, starting in Spring 2018.
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.

The shows can be seen online on YouTube.
