The Lifelong Impact of Early Childhood Education
It is well known that preschool can help a child be better prepared for kindergarten. But did you know that a high-quality early childhood education program can positively impact physical, mental, and emotional health throughout a child’s life?
Early childhood – birth to age 5 – is a critical period for a child’s emotional and cognitive development. This is because 90% of a child’s brain growth occurs during this time period! Enrolling your child in a comprehensive, research-based early learning program, like those offered at New Horizon Academy, can have a significant and lasting impact on their future health and well-being.
The Benefits of High-Quality Early Childhood Education
Here are just a few of the benefits of early childhood education for children and families:
- Helps establish a foundation of health, well-being, and social-emotional development.
- Boosts cognitive development and brain connections.
- Minimizes negative effects of adverse early childhood experiences.
- Protects against disease and disability later in life.
- Helps to close achievement gaps.
- Prepares children for kindergarten and future learning.
At New Horizon Academy, we continually work to incorporate the latest brain development research into our childcare and early learning programs. We are committed to providing the best early childhood experience for the children in our care, and to making high-quality childcare options available for all children.
