Reality Check

The Importance of Early Education

“Being able to have a community-wide system that really supports high quality early childhood education helps all of us.”

It is crucial to expose children to new experiences and ideas early on, because 90% of a child's brain is developed by the age of 5.

The data clearly shows that children who receive early, quality education outperform those who do not. Yet access to affordable childcare is a challenge for many, especially those who live paycheck to paycheck.

In episode 3 of Reality Check, we explore what quality childcare is all about, and what parents can do to help ensure that their child develops a healthy love of the classroom.
