Parent Leaders

In our work with Think Babies Michigan, Parent Leaders play an essential role in education, outreach, policy change, and bettering our communities from the inside-out. 

Parent Leaders

The first three years of a child's life are critical, a formative period that can lay the groundwork for the best possible outcomes throughout a child's life. Across Michigan, tens of thousands of families with infants and toddlers are not able to access the high-quality programs, services and opportunities they need to raise healthy and thriving children.

​Think Babies Michigan Policy Priorities: 2020-2025​

  1. Ensure that race, income or zip code does not determine a child’s destiny in Michigan.

  2. Develop a statewide, cross-sector infant-toddler workforce strategy.

  3. Expand enrollment in and access to high-quality child care, early intervention, home visiting and preventive care services.

  4. Strengthen how families learn about and access programs and services.

  5. Actively support efforts led by partners and allies that positively impact infants and toddlers and their families.
