Pre school classroom with teacher and children

If life is a race, some children begin on the starting line, some get a head start, and some begin far behind.

If those who start out behind do not catch up early, they risk falling further and further behind. Early opportunity gaps lead to short-term differences in skill development, which lead to medium-term lags in educational achievement, which over time translate into long-term deficits in educational attainment, employment opportunities, and economic self-sufficiency. Providing high-quality education and support early in life gives the best chance for all children to succeed.
