A new series of reports, Building Strong Foundations: Advancing Comprehensive Policies for Infants, Toddlers, and Families, developed by Zero to Three and the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), outlines 13 core policies required to support young children and their families on a path to healthy development. The core policies align with the recommendations and priorities of the First 1,000 Days Florida Coalition. The policies address the comprehensive and interrelated needs of infants, toddlers, and families, ensuring access to mental and physical health care services; healthy food to eat; stable housing; good jobs with adequate benefits; and quality early care and learning programs. The series, developed with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, includes a framework, overarching rationale, and 13 policy briefs that make the case for these essential core policies and identify action steps for federal and state policymakers to build and improve upon them.
