Why Get Involved?

Learning begins at birth.

Children learn more during the preschool years than any other time in life.

Children acquire 75% of their adult language by age three.

Recent brain research confirms that the early years have an enormous impact on a child's later development and success in school.

What parents do with their children in those early years does make a difference.
