Early Life and Education
Early childhood years (birth to age eight) are crucial for children’s development. These form the basis for future learning, behavior and health.

Educators, parents and policymakers strive to create learning environments that nurture young children during these formative years. This can be accomplished through developmental-appropriate play as well as rigorous academic preparation programs in reading, writing and math.
