What would you give to ensure that 88% of our community’s children achieved a successful life despite the challenges facing them in the post COVID-19 world?

Estimates suggest that the time spent out of early childhood education programming will result in 5 months to 1 year of learning loss. This rate is highest for at-risk children.

Vast research has shown that the best recipe for success involves quality early childhood care and education. Facing an uncertain future, the children of 2020 need access to our programs more than ever so they can continue to enliven the community.
