North Carolina’s Messaging Around the Importance of a Child’s First 2000 Days


North Carolina’s Partnership for Children has launched a website designed to generate support for early learning by highlighting that there are only 2,000 days from a child’s birth to the first day of kindergarten. The site provides basic information about the value of early education in easy-to-understand messages. It’s a useful model of how to reach people outside of the early child-hood field to gain support for early learning. While the website does feature North Carolina- specific information, organizations and people from around the country are sharing it because it makes the case for early learning in a straightforward manner.
