Early childhood education is increasingly being cited as one of the most important factors in a child’s future success. More than three quarters of a child’s intellect, personality, and social skills are developed by age five. Estimates state that every dollar invested in early childhood education returns over seven dollars by the time a child turns 19. However, only 14% of public education dollars are spent on early childhood education in the U.S.
