Benefits of early education and Preschool​:

  • The most important growth and development in the brain happens by the age of five. 

  • The early years are the learning years.

  • A child’s ability to be attentive and to follow directions emerges in the early years. 

  • Structured early learning fosters these abilities for later success in school and in life.

  • Pre-K prepares children to be ready for school. Children who participate in high-quality early childhood education programs develop better language skills, score higher in school-readiness tests and have better social skills and fewer behavioral problems once they enter school.  They are also better prepared for Kindergarten, especially in the areas of pre-reading, pre-math and social skills.

  • Pre-K promotes a love of learning in children. 

  • Pre-K enhances what a child learns at home and instills a love of life-long learning.​
