Did you know that there are only about 2,000 days between a baby’s birth and the day that child starts kindergarten? And so much happens during those 2,000 days to prepare the child for elementary school and later life. Children need the experiences that will help them develop well-connected brain architecture, good health, and social-emotional skills. The First 2,000 Days initiative, sponsored by the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation, is a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of those first 2,000 days. Won’t you help spread the word?
