For Caring Citizens
Regardless of whether there are young children in your life, the care and education of young children affect you in more ways than you realize
The little girl behind you in the restaurant could be your doctor in 20 years… or living off your tax dollars.
The little boy you passed on the sidewalk could one day pull you from a burning building… or burglarize your house.
Quality preschool can be the difference between a child’s success in life… or their struggles. It capitalizes on a key period of brain development, molding such important traits as self-control, independence, language skills and making good choices. It prepares children for kindergarten so they will start school with the skills needed for success, because evidence shows that children who start behind tend to stay behind.
Investing in early childhood education programs is the most cost-effective way to ensure the healthy development of children and ensure the greatest returns to society.
