Early Education

    Early education and early literacy play an important role in reducing some of the risk factors leading to the dropout crisis. We tend to only think about the dropout crisis when students are approaching the last year or two of high school, but the problems and warning signs start at a much younger age. Once children fall behind in school, it is difficult to get them back on track. That’s why it is crucial to provide a solid educational foundation using quality resources that support their early and continued success in school.
