Here's what you should know about early child education
Quality early learning experiences for all children are critical to a community’s economic success, a key driver of school readiness – and vital to improving high school graduation rates. Studies show that children entering kindergarten with the cognitive, social and emotional skills necessary for success are more likely to graduate high school.
That’s because a child’s early years, from birth until school age, are a unique period of growth and development: learning to walk and talk, beginning to think independently, understanding how to communicate and learning to control thoughts and emotions. All of those are critical early learning skills that build a foundation for successful future learning.
Four decades of research show that high quality early childhood experiences, inside and outside the home, can make a significant difference for children, creating a vital pathway for success in school and life
An estimated 33% of 3-5 year old children do not participate in any early childhood experience prior to kindergarten entry. For some families this is a matter of choice.
However, many at-risk children do not participate due to barriers including: lack of funding, transportation, and information.
Currently, in the Rochester Public School District, there are more than 110 children eligible for free and reduced lunch on a waiting for preschool placement.
