Amidst this challenging and uncertain time, we have seen early childhood systems and direct service providers adapt and innovate to meet the needs of young children, their families and communities. For example, virtual services have allowed some organizations to connect with new families that they normally would not have been able to reach.
What efforts to build better early childhood systems have you heard of or seen? What changes have you seen in the prenatal to age three space, related to pre-kindergarten aged children, and across the birth to age five span?
Join us for Strolling Thunder New Jersey 2020 and help us bring attention to what our youngest children need to thrive: quality child care, healthy starts for babies and support for their new parents. This annual rally is part of a campaign to remind our lawmakers to #ThinkBabies when making decisions. View pictures of last year's rally in front of the State House Annex.
