WHY IT MATTERS
Putting children on the path to success starts before they even enter school. Because a child’s brain develops the fastest in early childhood, children need a strong family ecosystem, early learning opportunities and access to developmental services.
When children start school ready to learn, achieve on-grade reading and math levels, maintain strong attendance and graduate on time, they are prepared for secondary education or to enter the workforce. A well educated workforce ensures individual financial stability and a robust, thriving economy.
