Palmetto Basics: 5 Fun, Simple, Powerful Ways To Help Caregivers Give Children A Great Start In Life

80% of brain growth happens in the first three years after birth. That’s why the Palmetto Basics Campaign is working to make sure that every parent and caregiver knows what they can do to make the most of this opportunity to give the infants and toddlers they love a great start in life.

The Basics are five fun, simple, and powerful ways to help all our children become the happiest and most successful they can be.
