An Open Letter to the Nation on Behalf of Infants and Toddlers

Share this Article

ECFC is honored to be among nearly 1,500 organizations singing on to An Open Letter to the Nation on Behalf of Infants and Toddlers, a project of the The National Collaborative for Infants & Toddlers (NCIT).  The initiative is intended to highlight shared values and principles regarding the importance of investing in prenatal-to-three priorities that young children and their families need to thrive, and calls for bold leadership around these core principles:

  • Economic Security for All
  • High-Quality, Affordable Child Care
  • Comprehensive Family Supports
  • Maternal and Child Health
  • Equitable Policy Implementation

As of March 1, 2022, the letter has garnered support from nearly 1,500 organizations and all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, underpinning a movement for strong and sustained public investment in prenatal-to-three.

The intent is to help PN-3 champions share the news that this broad, diverse coalition of organizations agrees that children and their families, particularly infants and toddlers, should be our nation’s priority, and bring attention to the investments needed to set them up for success.
