More About Too Small to Fail
Too Small to Fail, a joint initiative of the Clinton Foundation and The Opportunity Institute, aims to help parents and businesses take meaningful actions to improve the health and well-being of children from birth to age five, so that more of America’s children are prepared for success. Too Small to Fail is building a public awareness and action campaign to provide parents and caregivers with information and tools to talk, read, and sing with their young children to promote early language and brain development.
We are working to promote new research on the science of children’s brain development, early learning and early health, and we will help parents, businesses and communities identify specific actions, consistent with the new research, that they can take to improve the lives of young children. As we do this work and secure commitments to action, we will use social media, other technology-driven tools and innovative approaches to inform and empower parents and business leaders to track their progress and measure their success.
Our next generation truly is Too Small to Fail – every child deserves the best possible chance at success. Early childhood experiences have a deep impact on the rest of a child’s life, and America’s future economic prosperity will ultimately be determined by the success of today’s children. Too Small to Fail is about parents, caregivers, other concerned individuals, and the private sector coming together to take small, research-based actions with big impacts. We hope you will join us in helping prepare America’s children to succeed in the 21st century.
