Additional Information

Our vision: In the first 1000 days we make the difference of a lifetime. Evidence shows getting things right in the first 1000 days of a child’s life will set them up for better outcomes later in life. We're proud to visit over 85% of all newborn babies in Aotearoa and support whānau and their tamariki.
