Community

Learning doesn't start at kindergarten, it starts at birth. That is why programs that provide early care and education services play such an important role in the growth and development of young children. In addition to helping ensure that children arrive at school ready to succeed, early care and education programs enable parents to meet the financial needs of their families and businesses to attract and retain a high quality workforce.
