Why is school readiness important?
When a child thrives in their earliest years, they are ready and poised for success forever! Learning begins at birth, and in the first five years of life, the human brain develops at a faster pace than any other time. That growth depends on nurturing caregivers and is the foundation for all the learning and development that follows.
