Why Early Education and Care?

The brain builds 700 neural connections every second the first several years of a child’s life. By age 3, on average, the vocabulary of low-income children is about 500 words, roughly half the size of the 1100-word vocabulary of children whose parents hold professional jobs. Children’s vocabulary at age 3 is strongly correlated with their language skills in third grade.
