The Learning Begins at Birth Parent Guide resource resulted from a collective effort among dedicated Early Childhood Care and Education professionals as well as caring parents who committed countless hours in developing and reviewing content. Through relationships and networking, the group helped to assure that the guide has broad distribution to those who might benefit.

Nebraska statute 79-1902 states that the Nebraska Department of Education and Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services will collaborate to create a resource booklet titled Learning Begins at Birth. This booklet is to be given to the parents of each child born in Nebraska to provide information on child development, child care, how children learn, children’s health, services available to children and parents, and any other relevant information.
