Countless research on human development has indicated that the first few years of a child’s life is essential in fostering a lifetime of wellness. The experiences children have during the early years shape their understanding of the world, their connection to their community, and their future contribution to society. We, at Together For Kids Coalition work in supporting the collaborative system that ensures a healthy start for every child. TFK Coalition focuses on preventing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) which have lifelong impact on a person's physical, emotional, and mental health. We are the movers and shakers, and we rally to ensure that Massachusetts policy makers invest in early childhood care and education for every child to thrive in school and in life. TFKC supports early childhood health, universal high quality affordable early education and care, family engagement and engaging businesses and the whole community in supporting families and children. Through effective community planning, collaboration and reshaping of policies, we can strategize changes within our early childhood system.
Emotional well-being and social competence provide a strong foundation for emerging cognitive abilities, and together they are the bricks and mortar of brain architecture. The emotional and physical health, social skills, and cognitive-linguistic capacities that emerge in the early years are all important for success in school, the workplace, and in the larger community
