Early childhood, beginning in infancy is a period of profound advances in reasoning, language acquisition, and problem solving, and importantly, a child’s environment can dramatically influence the degree and pace of these advances.
Orchard Kinder Preschool & Childcare provides high-quality Early Childhood Education.
Research has shown that much of what to succeed in life is established piror to kindergarten.
During that time, children's brain undergoes rapid development; it’s a period when a child builds cognitive skills — the foundation for reading, math, science and academics — as well as character skills, social-emotional growth which includes everything from impulse control to problem solving.

The rate of return to investment in human capital is markedly greater when investments occur at younger ages.
That is, while larger investments have been typically made in secondary education, higher education, job training programs, and remedial education, the rate of return is notably lower than if these same funds were invested in human capital formation during the infant/toddler and preschool years.
“A large body of empirical work at the interface of neuroscience and social science has established that fundamental cognitive and noncognitive skills are produced in the early years of childhood, long before children start kindergarten...” - Dr. James Heckman
Increased child and maternal earnings and employment translate into increased tax revenue. Abecedarian participants’ lifetime earnings increased by about $44,000, and their mothers’ lifetime earnings increased by more than $79,000.
Remedial education can consist of repeated grades or specialized schooling, and the additional cost of this extra schooling can be expensive.
Abecedarian participants experienced lower rates of grade retention and special education placements. Perry participants were less likely to be retained or place in special education classes
A number of programs with long-run follow-ups found the eardly childhood programs reduced juvenile arrests and criminal records of participants.
Many cost-benefit analyses find that these cost savings are substantial, and often account for the single largest portion of the accrued benefits over time.
Early childhood education can also benefit society by improving health outcomes for participants, thereby reducing public expenditures on health care, or lowering insurance premiums for private health coverage.
The achievement gap can be identified among children as young as 9 months of age.
Recent research indicates most, if not all, of the achievement gap found at age 5 (at schoolentry) and at age 8 could be eliminated by an intensive two-year early childhood program for infants and toddlers
When examining the academic records of two groups of students (high school graduates and dropouts), researchers found the dropouts had consistently lower scores in reading, writing, math and spelling when compared to the graduates.
These differences between the two groups of students were evident as early as kindergarten and the disparities increased throughout their academic careers.
