A child’s earliest years – from birth to age 5 – are the most critical for establishing the building blocks to a successful future. This period is short and we can’t get it back once it’s gone. Child Start gives young children quality, learning experiences and provides valuable training and support to early childhood educators. It is Child Start’s hope that one day every child will have access to quality, early childhood education.
