Advancing State Policies for Infants and Toddlers: Lessons Learned From Three States
This brief describes the experiences of three states (Indiana, Oregon, and Vermont) that participated in a technical assistance project with ZERO TO THREE to develop and take action toward cross-sector infant-toddler policy priorities.
- Engage stakeholders representing a range of programs serving young children;
- Build consensus on infant-toddler policy priorities;
- Elevate infant-toddler issues with policymakers and the public; and
- Establish systems to sustain focus on infants and toddlers over time.
This brief outlines how use of these strategies enabled Indiana, Oregon, and Vermont to elevate infant-toddler issues within broader early childhood initiatives, strengthen collaboration across systems, expand the base of stakeholders championing infant-toddler priorities, and develop a more unified voice for babies. It also offers recommendations for other states looking to engage in similar processes.
