The Power of Preschool

Our earliest years are the most potent in our development. Not only do we create the foundation for all academic skills, we learn the ‘soft skills’ that determine our adaptability, social intelligence, and cognitive flexibility.

In other words, we’ve built our roadmap to navigate life before first grade.

Quality preschool can help by supporting

  • Social development
  • Cognitive development
  • Intergenerational Mobility (parents’ ability to pass wealth to their children)
  • Lower risk of chronic disease in adulthood

[Advantage] in early childhood depends on the quality time parents can spend with their children and the parenting resources they can allocate for early development.

Every child needs quality early childhood education.
