Why We Do It

One of the biggest barriers for single parents pursuing higher education is access to quality, affordable childcare for their children. In addition, we recognize that during the first 6 years of life, a child’s brain develops rapidly, creating the highest potential for learning. Early childhood education in high-quality settings significantly impacts a child’s chances for success throughout their life. By instilling an early love of learning, and fostering physical, emotional, and social development, children are ready to learn by the time they enter kindergarten. Research shows that long-term early childhood programs increase lifelong earning potential, lower rates of teen pregnancy and incarceration, enable students to have higher earnings, lower the crime rates, and increase high school graduation rates. It is our hope that this success in learning carries them through to college.
