The first 2000 Days

Science has shown that 80 percent of the brain’s growth happens before the age of 3 and that the first 2,000 days of a child’s life – from birth to kindergarten – are critical to emotional, physical, and mental well-being.

People with enriched experiences during this vital time are more likely to:

  • Enter kindergarten on track
  • Read on grade level by 3rd grade
  • Graduate from high school
  • Have the skills needed by employers
  • Contribute more in tax dollars
