Quality Early Childhood Programs Work
With young brains developing so fast, a child’s first five years are immensely important, making the difference between a bright future and a lifetime of obstacles. And yet, nearly 5 million children live in under-resourced communities in the U.S. and often do not have access to high-quality early learning programs—the types of programs that are proven to:
- Help children enter kindergarten with the skills needed to succeed in school
- Increase high school graduation rates and college attendance
- Increase wages as an adult
- Reduce long-term social costs for special education, health and other remediation costs
That’s why Start Early is committed to providing meaningful early learning experiences that help our youngest learners thrive and empower their parents.
