Science tell us that what happens between birth to 3 --when a baby's brain grows the fastest than any other time in life-- lays the foundation for the rest of a child’s life. New Jersey needs policies that support parents with young children during this time of rapid development to unlock the potential of every child in New Jersey to grow up healthy, safe and educated. But to make change for babies, state leaders need to hear from parents!
Do you know a parent, guardian or grandparent of a child ages 0 to 5 willing to commit to being a voice for what young children need? Invite them to participate in a training that will help them: understand the system and strengthen their skills to tell their story to policymakers. While networking and bonding with other parents facing similar issues, this training will help them grow into advocates to make the needed changes for babies in our state!
