First Class Pre-K

Since 90% of brain development occurs during a child’s first five years of life, early childhood experiences establish either a sturdy or a fragile foundation for everything that follows. High-quality, voluntary pre-kindergarten (pre-k) for four-year-olds is an effective early childhood education program that prepares children to succeed socially, emotionally, and academically in kindergarten and beyond. Every $1 invested in high-quality pre-k produces a return-on-investment (ROI) of approximately $7.
