WHY QUALITY MATTERS
The first five years of a child’s life are extremely important. Research shows that the care and education children receive from birth to age five play a major role in their early brain development.
High quality early learning experiences make a lasting difference—they help prepare children to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. In fact, studies have shown that children who attend high quality early learning programs are more likely to graduate from high school and have successful careers.
Children who receive a high quality early education:
HAVE BETTER CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS
ARE BETTER AT ENGAGING AND COOPERATING WITH OTHERS
DO BETTER IN READING AND MATH
ARE MORE LIKELY TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL
ARE MORE LIKELY TO ATTEND A FOUR-YEAR COLLEGE
