A New Book Details The Critical Importance Of Early Childhood Education


Research has shown the importance of early childhood education. Children who attend quality pre-K programs can acquire academic, social and emotional skills that help form the foundation of their future success.

She recently talked with us about her work, and what she discovered as she studied Pre-K programs across the country.
