You can be a voice for young children and families in Randolph County.
Brain development research tells us that more than 85% of the brain develops in the first 5 years of life. What infants, toddlers and preschoolers experience during this critical period will impact the rest of their lives.
Regardless of the circumstances into which a child is born, every child deserves the best start in life. Nutrition, early literacy, nurturing, play and compassion are all vital components in building the best foundations for success in school and life.
The role of an advocate is to help educate the public and key partners on the importance of the early years. With the facts, policymakers, communities, businesses, partner organizations and educators can prioritize policy, programs and funding in support of young children and their families.
