Today, more than one-third of Nebraska's infants and toddlers are considered at-risk and live in conditions that are not conducive to early learning.
Decades of scientific research tells us that the first few years in a child's life is when the most rapid brain development occurs. Infants and toddlers are forming key relationships, developing trust, and exploring the world around them.
Whether it is in their own home, a family member's house or an out-of-home early care education center, it is absolutely crucial children have environments that foster healthy development and lay the building blocks for all future learning.
