Celebrate and Support Babies
Imagine waking up to a day that celebrated the excitement and opportunity of the tiniest Texans. Where families meet for playdates in parks, workplaces provide flexibility and support to new parents, and politicians pledge to support our future by building stronger policies for the leaders of tomorrow…the babies of today.
Baby Day is the only statewide celebration of the first three years, when early experiences shape lifelong potential. Join us year-round, to celebrate this incredible period of growth in our tiniest Texans.READ MORE

Baby Day Activities
Create an Early Learning Passport that contains checklists, documents, and work samples that can be passed on to the child’s kindergarten teacher. The child’s skills and development can later be passed on to the teacher in a useful and organized way.Learn More
