The Foundation for Child Development "is a national, private philanthropy dedicated to the principle that all families should have the social and material resources to raise their children to be healthy, educated and productive members of their communities." The Foundation “supports policy and practice relevant research, as well as advocacy and communications” as related to their current direction.
Those interested in child development will find links to Public Policy at both the state and national levels (e.g., information about immigrant children as well as a Child Well-Being Index). Also on the site are the archives of an in house publication, Learning Curve, where users can find articles on a plethora of topics ranging from "Fighting Fade-Out by advancing PK-3 Alignment" to "PK-3 Indicators available on Child Trends DataBank." Overall, this site is a beneficial tool for students, instructors and professionals in the field of child development.
