ECE – 3 Reasons Why Early Childhood Education is Important

Early Intervention
Early Childhood Education (ECE) leads to less students being place in Special Education in their primary years. By meeting a child’s need early on, they can better learn and retain the foundational skills and knowledge to help them succeed in their future. If they start off in Kindergarten behind in their learning, they are going to be playing catch up for many years, and possibly their entire school experience. Early Education gives them a great jump start into learning.

Assists Families
In the United States, there has been an increase in working families, both mother and father holding full-time or even part-time positions.  Because of this, there is a great need for child care.  In order to maintain society’s new change in family life, we need a quality Early Childhood Education program for children to attend and for families to place their trust in.

Good for the Economy
Statistics show that Early Education has proven to increase graduation rates and college attendance. These things help to create a greater quality workforce! In addition, it also shows that Early Education lowers rates of teen pregnancy and incarcerations. Overall, it helps to give children their best chance at success in life!

I think we would all agree that these precious kiddos deserve every penny and ounce of time spent into making their education and early life as special and wonderful as possible!

Did you or your little ones attend an ECE course? What did you think?

  1. I like that you mentioned how ECE can help parents who are both working and provide a care service. My wife is needing to go back to work here in month and we need to find somewhere to watch our son. It would be great to have him learning at the same time.

  2. Early childhood education not only affects the academics but also develop important social skills like attentiveness,impulse control & persistence which helps to develop better future for students. By receiving early childhood education it is not required for the children to take special education in their primary years. A child can better learn & retain the foundation & knowledge to help him succeed in the future. Early childhood education also increases the graduation rates & college attendance. It helps in assisting families where both parents are working & child needs care. So in order that the parents come to know about early childhood education & admit their child in a preschool where proper care of their child will be taken,they may refer to:

  3. My sister and her husband have been working full time for their respective offices for a while now, and it got me worried because there won’t be anyone left to take care of my four-year-old niece. I decided to research what I can do so that she does not miss out and learn what a child her age has to learn, and I came across this article. It was great because I found out that since there’s an increasing rate of families in the US that have both parents working, sending their children to preschool is a must as it not only offers education but also childcare. I will suggest him to the parents. Thank you!

    1. Juris, thanks for reaching out. Daycare is a tricky issue & we’re happy to offer insight into how to find the perfect place.

  4. Thank you for pointing out that when a child learns early on they are more likely to retain the foundation skills and knowledge needed in life. My daughter loves learning and I think I should look into finding her a kindergarten that can help with that. Hopefully, I can find the best one in my area for her.

  5. I liked it when you pointed out that preschool programs are also for parents who work full-time since they will have a place that they can rely on for their kids. That’s exactly the reason why I want my brother to enroll her little girl in a preschool program. I can see that he is having a hard time balancing his time between his daughter and his job. Anyway, I will try convincing him again.

  6. It is very interesting to me that people that are in early childhood education programs have lower rates of teen pregnancy and incarcerations. I have been thinking about putting our twins in an early childhood education program and this is good that they are successful. The other thing that I really liked is that the program has higher rates of college attendance.

  7. That’s interesting that early education has direct statistics to increasing graduation rates and college attendance. If that isn’t alarming, I don’t know what is. I will definitely send my kids to preschool when they are of age.
