About

The First 2,000 Days is an initiative of the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation. NCECF is raising awareness about how children’s earliest years have a lasting impact on later learning, health and success and calls attention to how these issues impact our national security, safety and economic well-being.

In 2017, NCECF was awarded Best Awareness Campaign at Grade-Level Reading Week – the national conference of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading.
