Prospective Parents

Research continues to uncover powerful connections between a child’s early education and his or her IQ, behavior and overall capacity later in life.  By investing in quality early education programs during the critical period when children are  developing  the foundation of their cognitive skills and character traits such as perseverance and conscientiousness, parents equip their children with building blocks for lifelong success.
