“Investing in our youngest children must be a priority. We all share a bottom-line interest in their success…It’s not rocket science. But it’s the way we grow rocket scientists. It’s not just the right thing to do. It’s the smart one.”
Mike Halligan, Washington Companies – from The Billings Gazette
- Social and emotional milestones are often harder to pinpoint than signs of physical development. Social skills and emotional development are reflected by the child’s ability to pay attention, move from one activity to another and cooperate with others.
- Children’s Programming utilizes curriculum designed specifically to build these skills, which are key to school readiness.
“It is critically important to establish the foundation for success during a child’s first five years.
What happens during those early years — whether children have regular access to decent health care (including prenatal care for mothers); books in the home that parents read to them; opportunities to develop social-emotional skills, habits such as self-discipline, persistence and cooperation; and early education — largely determines whether they arrive at kindergarten ready to learn or already far behind.”
