From the Chairperson of the Board

You’ve probably heard many times that the positive result of an early education can last throughout a lifetime. What you may not know is that high quality early education programs are beneficial to all of us—children, parents, and the community at large.
 
Research shows us that children with a background that includes high quality early education and care are more likely to experience academic success and graduate from high school. Also, for every dollar spent on quality early learning programs, it is estimated that society saves more than $7 in future costs for special education, public assistance, delinquency and prison programs. We have also learned that communities in support of quality programs for young children become healthier, stronger and safer communities.
 
Our board is comprised of members with expertise in the areas of child development, education, public assistance, healthcare, finance, marketing, and other representatives from private sector businesses. Together with Coalition staff and a host of community partners, we are dedicated to helping link families to early education programs, providing training and support for local child care providers, and promoting positive practices in programs for our youngest citizens.
 
According to an old Chinese proverb, “Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” Believing this to be true, our hope is to be instrumental in making the early learning experience one that will bring success both to our children now and throughout their lives, and success to our community as a whole.
