Why Early Childhood Education is the Answer

Recently, I was asked by concerned community members to explain why people keep saying that early childhood education is the answer to issues we are facing. Why did Dr. Robert Putnam cite early childhood as a go-to solution? The proof is nearly a half century in the making. Famous studies from High/Scope Perry Preschool project, Abecedarian Preschool in North Carolina, the Chicago Child Parent Center project were the subject of the Federal Reserve’s report on the return on a preschool investment. What they found was investment in early care and education yields extraordinary public returns.


Improving our children's future strengthens our community.
