Growing Up in New Zealand, in conjunction with the University of Auckland and Families Commission invites you to attend a seminar to introduce the report "Now We Are Two: Describing our first 1000 days".

The first 1000 days of every child’s life are critical as they build the foundations for their future development. This report from Growing Up in New Zealand, "Now We Are Two: Describing our first 1000 days", reveals rich new data generated by this important longitudinal study from before birth until two years.

The study is a unique resource that will help inform and support work to ensure that children and young people are safe, healthy, achieve and belong in the context of their families and whānau, and wider communities.
