WHY IS QUALITY CHILD CARE IMPORTANT?

Brain Development Current research has shown that the early years (ages 0-5) are the most sensitive for brain development. Over 90% of brain growth occurs during this period. The people who help care for your child are also those who help shape your child’s mind. For more information, see our Brain Development and School Readiness fact sheet. School Readiness Studies show that children who receive quality child care enter school.
