Is Your Workplace Family Forward? Get Certified.Employers across North Carolina want to attract and retain the best employees, and they want those employees to be happy and healthy. Our Family Forward NC Employer Certification designates employers that offer policies and practices that support the health and well-being of working families and children.
We work to promote understanding, spearhead collaboration, and advance policies to ensure each North Carolina child is on track for lifelong success by the end of third grade. Much of this work happens through our initiatives:
- NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading
- Family Forward NC
- NC Campaign for Grade-Level Reading
- Care and Learning (CandL)
- Local Funding for Early Learning
Each child can have the opportunity to be on track by third grade with aligned policies and practices rooted in child development, including health and development on track beginning at birth, supported and supportive families and communities, and high-quality birth through third grade learning environments with regular attendance. Learn about the issues that support children’s optimal development beginning at birth.
