The importance of choosing a quality child care center.

What is the difference between early education and day care?

High quality early care and education provides children with developmentally appropriate experiences in a stimulating environment with qualified, responsive teachers. These early experiences help children develop a foundation of social, emotional, critical thinking, and pre-academic skills that they are expected to possess when they enter kindergarten. Quality early care and education prepares children to succeed in school and in life.
