  • EDUCATION
    EDUCATION
    Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. The first five years of a childs life are a crucial stage of life in terms of a child's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an amazing rate and a very high percentage of learning takes place from birth to age five. It is a time when children especially need high quality personal care and learning experiences. But with more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. The cost? More than $312 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes. These trends are reversible, but only when communities and public, private and nonprofit sectors work together.
