There are only 2,000 Days in a child’s life before their first day of kindergarten.
I am an advocate
2,000 Days is a movement driven to help families embrace the most critical time in their child’s life – the 2,000 days between birth and kindergarten. The Pledge was founded on leading research that shows that 90 percent of a child’s brain develops within the first 2,000 days of life. This is the most effective time to make a lasting, long-term impact that will benefit each and every child, as well as the greater good of the community. The Pledge is aimed at increasing awareness for how this time impacts a child’s long-term future in school, career and in life. By helping families better prepare children for school, 2,000 Days can make a significant impact on future graduation rates and the long-term vitality of an entire region.
