Early childhood education is vital to the development and well-being of young children. Research has shown that children who participate in a quality early childhood education are:
- More likely to graduate from High School
- More likely to own their own home
- Less likely to get in trouble with the law
The reason the above outcomes are true is because early childhood education is focused on social and emotional development, physical well-being and motor development, language and literacy, cognition and general knowledge, and the approaches toward learning. Children are exposed to and practice these skills daily which help to them to become engaged, life-long learners.
