The mission of the Better Baby Care Campaign of Rockland County is to improve the quality of life for babies and toddlers by providing comprehensive support, education, and services for families, caregivers and the community.
We believe that:
- Every infant and toddler should grow-up in a strong and nurturing family.
- All pregnant women, expectant fathers, and parents of infants and toddlers should have access to parent education and family support.
- All working families with infants and toddlers should have access to quality, affordable child care.
- Every infant and toddler should have a clearly identified primary healthcare provider.
- Every infant, toddler and their family should have health insurance and access to information on health resources, including services for children with special needs.
- All families should have access to paid family and medical leave.
- All infants and toddlers with special needs should have access to early intervention and access to specialized services where needed.
- All infants and toddlers should have a stable and permanent home.
