Study after study shows that the earlier a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road. The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical time of growth and learning. In fact, 85% of a child’s brain develops by age five, before a child even enters school.
Quality early childhood education is about preparing children for life, and it is one of the highest-return investments a family can make.
Research proves that children who experience quality early learning are more likely to:
- Succeed academically
- Graduate from high school
- Obtain post-secondarytraining and higher education
- Earn higher salaries
- More competent socially and emotionally
- Show better verbal, intellectual and physicaldevelopment
Preparing our children for learning and life is a long-term process. And we are incredibly proud and humbled to be a part of this process with you.
