Moving an Infant-Toddler Policy Agenda

Moving an Infant-Toddler Policy Agenda
The ZERO TO THREE Policy Center hosted a state policy action team meeting on developing and moving an infant-toddler policy agenda in May 2013. Based on their responses to a Request for Applications, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania sent teams to participate.
The goals of the meeting were to:

  • Highlight innovative state models and strategies for developing and operationalizing an infant-toddler policy agenda;
  • Assist participating states in moving forward a policy agenda for infant, toddlers, and their families; and
  • Promote relationships and continued collaborative work among participants.

Sessions focused on topics such as: crafting an infant-toddler policy agenda, developing effective messaging, engaging “hard to reach” families, leveraging funding sources to support infant-toddler initiatives, and improving the quality of infant-toddler services.

Materials for the meeting can be downloaded below:

The Policy Center will work with the five participating states over the next year to help them move forward with goals identified as a result of the meeting.

ZERO TO THREE thanks the Alliance for Early Success for their generous support of this technical assistance opportunity.
