TALK THE TOT ™
A campaign to spread the word about the critical importance of supporting babies, toddlers, and their families to foster children’s healthy development.
More than 1,000,000 new neural connections form every second in a child’s first few years of life.
The first three years of a child’s life are a period of rapid brain development. Meaning that the experiences of babies and toddlers have an enormous impact on their brain’s architecture — the foundation for all future learning, behavior and health. Yet, too often, families with young children are disconnected from or can’t access the supports that would help them optimize their child’s healthy growth and development.1
WHAT IT ENTAILED
Partners, caregivers, and early childhood workers utilized our toolkit to share facts about early childhood development
Caregivers shared their stories about their child’s development, key milestones, support that has helped them as a parent, or how they’ve supported parents of young children.
Pledge signers let our state’s leaders know California must do better in supporting families with young children.
