The FSU Center for Prevention & Early Intervention Policy focuses on vulnerable infants and toddlers who can be positively affected through nurturing relationships, strong maternal and child health, and quality early childhood care and education. The FSU Center is a unit under the administrative arm of the University's Institute for Science and Public Affairs and totally funded through grants and contracts with a current annual budget of approximately four million dollars.
New scientific evidence substantiates that the earliest years of life provide the critical foundation for developing social, intellectual, and emotional competence.
The FSU Center began in 1989 at the Collins Center for Public Policy under the direction of Senator Lawton Chiles who was highly committed to maternal and child health issues. When Chiles became Governor, the work of the Center continued in the Policy Studies Clinic at the FSU College of Law until the Center was established in February 1991 as part of the FSU Institute for Science and Public Affairs. The FSU Center's work continues to contribute to major state initiatives for maternal and child health and development.
