National Collaborative for Infants and Toddlers
Strong Foundations For Our Youngest Children

The National Collaborative for Infants & Toddlers (NCIT) – powered by the BUILD Initiative – is committed to advancing policies and programs that ensure every child from prenatal to age three has the support s/he needs for a strong start in life.

When we support them from the start, infants grow into healthy kids who are confident, empathetic, and ready to succeed in school and life—and our families, communities, workforce, and economy become stronger and more productive.

NCIT brings together early childhood leaders, policymakers, and practitioners from inside and outside state and local government. With support from national organizations, states and communities are creating and strengthening effective policies and programs—and sharing what works—to support pregnant women, infants, and toddlers.
