Research indicates that 90% of a person’s intellectual, emotional and social ability is formed by the age of three, making the early years a vitally important time in a child’s life. When children begin school behind, they stay behind.  High quality early learning programs can help close this gap. 

We know from 40 years of research that children who receive high-quality care:

  • ·         Demonstrate greater social skills throughout their education
  • ·         Excel in reading and math
  • ·         Have better school attendance records
  • ·         Are more motivated to learn and have a high commitment to school.
  • ·         Are more likely to graduate from high school and pursue a post-secondary education or training
  • ·         Exhibit a lower rate of unemployment
  • ·         Have the potential to have higher earnings over their lifetime.

A child’s earliest teachers must love, respect and nurture them.  Selecting a provider who connects with young children emotionally is critical.  It’s very important that a family selects a provider who reads to their child every day, encourages curiosity, and allows a child to explore the world around him or her.
