Just how valuable is a child's experience in an early childhood education program!


Recent research has shown that children with an early qualified child development start have:

  • Higher grades

  • Greater social and emotional maturity

  • More frequent high school graduation/GED completion

  • Better attitudes toward school and better self-esteem

  • Lower incidence of illegitimate pregnancy, drug abuse, and delinquent acts

  • Higher future aspirations, more post-secondary education

  • Higher employment rates and better earnings and, correspondingly, a lower incidence of dependence on welfare

  • Fewer arrests and antisocial acts

  • Better relationships with family members, and a higher incidence of volunteer work
