Event description

Description


Join us to give your input about key strategies to help babies and their families thrive! Collaborate with your early childhood colleagues and advocates in child health, family support, and early learning, and celebrate the work of Think Babies™ NC.



Are you passionate about babies and their families? Do you want to make an impact on programs and policies to support our state's youngest children? Are you committed to working on infant-toddler issues? Then come take a seat at the table at the Think Babies™ Think Tank and Celebration!

Who should attend
Parents, child care providers, early educators, service providers, professionals working in child health, family support or early education, and anyone who cares about and advocates for our state's youngest children and their families.

About the Event
Learn about the importance of the earliest years from a reknowned pediatrician and a panel of parents sharing their personal experiences, and hear more about the exciting work taking place across the state by recipients of the Outstanding Baby Advocate Award.

Then, in groups focused on healthy beginnings, supported families, and early care and learning, you'll have an opportunity to collaborate with your early childhood colleagues and Think Babies™ advocates for a critical conversation about key issues and potential strategies to improve outcomes for babies and their families. The work you do at this event will help set the stage for improving outcomes for babies and their families.

Our goal for this event is to represent the great diversity of North Carolina - geographical, racial, expertise and experience, and background - so that the needs of all of our youngest children and their families can be recognized and we can work towards solutions together. Please help us bring together a diverse group of stakeholders by sharing this invitation with your networks and helping to recruit parents, child care providers, early educators, and community partners across North Carolina.
