Webinar | Prenatal-to-3: Translating the Science and Evidence to State Policy (02/20/20)

The science is clear that prenatal to age 3 is the most sensitive period for a child’s developing brain and body, building the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Having a strong start and the presence of strong caregiver-child relationships during this time are key to healthy development. What’s not as clear is how to translate that science to policies that strengthen equity and outcomes for kids. Link to recording of webinar coming soon.
