The Committee on Integrating the Science of Early Childhood Development was established by the Board on Children, Youth, and Families of the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council to update scientific knowledge about the nature of early development and the role of early experiences, to disentangle such knowledge from erroneous popular beliefs or misunderstandings, and to discuss the implications of this knowledge base for early childhood policy, practice, professional development, and research.
