The science is clear. Our brains grow faster between the ages of 0 and 3 than at any other point in life. Those first few years lay the foundation for the rest of a child’s life, affecting everything from classroom performance, to earning potential, to life expectancy.
The moment is now. We all have a role in achieving equity and eliminating disparities that impact outcomes for babies, families and communities. Strong early childhood programs and policies result in a significant return on investment.
