"Our findings provide strong evidence that sustained high-quality early childhood programs can contribute to well-being for individuals and society," said Dr. Arthur J Reynolds, director of the Chicago Longitudinal Study and co-director of the Human Capital Research Collaborative at the University of Minnesota. “As public institutions are being pressed to cut costs, our findings suggest that increasing access to high-quality programs starting in preschool and continuing into the early grades is an efficient use of public resources."
Child development programs that use private and public incentives will be stronger. Make a difference today for your community’s children by supporting these vital programs.
