We are a Family

Families are a child's first teacher, and home is their first classroom. By taking the 2,000 Days Pledge, you will be included in a network of information and resources that will help make the most of your child's first 2,000 days.

I Pledge

to make the first 2,000 Days count for my child!

  1. Throughout the first 2000 Days of my child’s life, I pledge to make the most of that time through positive experiences at home and in the community.
  2. I will enroll my child in a high-quality preschool when the time is right and partner with the school’s teachers to make the most of that time.
  3. I will choose a high-quality elementary school that supports my child’s strengths and challenges and continue to partner with teachers.

How the program works


After taking the Pledge, 2,000 Days will provide ongoing tips, suggestions and information that helps families maximize their time with their children. The information is designed to require no money and no additional time.

Simple activities can make a big difference including singing ABC’s during bath time, counting in the car and reading before bed. These little differences can have a dramatic effect on kindergarten preparedness and how well a child performs throughout school.

It’s never too late to start. Every child before age five can benefit from this support. Families face many choices during this time – small and large – all of which affect a child’s development and preparation for school.

How the program
helps your child

Research shows that 90 percent of a child’s brain develops within the first 2,000 days of life.

Through a better understanding of early childhood development and learning, 2,000 Days helps families understand ways to prepare their child for greater success in school and life.


Beginning from day one of a child’s life, every little experience that can stimulate and challenge a young mind will have life-long results.
