Our brains grow faster between the ages of 0 and 3 than at any later point in our lives. We need to invest in programs and policies that support early brain development in infants and toddlers, because babies build America. When babies have nurturing relationships, positive early learning experiences, and good health and nutrition, those neural connections are stimulated and strengthened, laying a strong foundation for the rest of their lives. Yet opportunities to grow and flourish are not shared equally by all infants, toddlers, and families, reflecting past and present systemic racism and barriers to critical resources. If our nation is to thrive, we must ensure that every baby has what they need to reach their full potential.
That’s why ZERO TO THREE created Think Babies™ , a call to action for federal and state policymakers to prioritize the needs of infants, toddlers and their families and invest in our future. Together, we are advocating for policies that ensure all babies and their families have good health, strong families, and positive early learning experiences, including:
- Child Care;
- Paid Leave;
- Early Head Start;
- Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health;
- Family Support; and
- Economic Security.
The science is clear: We must act now to ensure a positive future for generations to come. And with your help, we can make sure that our elected officials make babies a priority. We have a chance to create a world in which babies and parents have what they need to thrive and reach their fullest potential.
