Weekly Wisdom: The impact of early learning programs

It’s a nobrainer that high-quality early education can lead to a safer, stable and more successful future for a child. Often times, parents underestimate just how early children are positively affected by learning. Activities such as reading, math and talking together can make a lasting impact on a child’s cognitive development. In fact, recent research from ZERO TO THREE finds the benefits of reading can have a positive effect on a child as young as six months old! That’s why we must ensure children are thriving in every way possible. Whether it’s through home visiting, Head Start or high-quality child care, we must foster early learning. Let’s make sure Congress continues to invest in these programs!
