This month we are joining our partner the National Collaborative for Infants & Toddlers (NCIT) to highlight the importance of supporting infants and toddlers so that all babies “May” thrive. We celebrate communities like New Orleans, LA, and Austin, TX, that are expanding child care and home visiting programs, and states like Louisiana, Wisconsin, and New Mexico that have increased their investments in infant and toddler care. Follow us on our social media channels below to join our efforts to secure stable and sustained funding for our nation’s youngest children.
