Importance of Early Childhood Education


Children will learn more in their first five years than they will learn during the rest of their lives.


According to information from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, participation in a pre-kindergarten program improved school readiness, raised scores on achievement tests in reading and mathematics, and reduced the likelihood that a child would be required to repeat a grade in elementary school.
