Based on the results of extensive research, high-quality early childhood education has been found to generate significant long-term benefits for students.

It has been shown that children in early childhood education programs are not only less likely to be identified as having special needs and to need to repeat a grade, but also more academically prepared for later grades and more likely to graduate high school. They are also known to be higher earners in the workforce.

When analyzing the source of these gains, a 2017 Harvard Graduate School of Education study notes that “there is increasing evidence that social-economic skills may play a role, as they support children’s ability to continuously engage in learning environments, manage their own behaviors, and get along well with others.” In short, by placing your child in early childhood education programs, you’re allowing them to reach their full potential.
