Description
 
Early childhood is a period of profound advances in reasoning, language acquisition, and problem solving, and a childäó»s environment can dramatically influence the degree and pace of these advances. By supporting development when children are very young, early childhood development and education programs can complement parental investments and produce large benefits to children, parents, and society. This report describes the economic returns to investments in childhood development and early education. Some of these, such as increases in parental earnings and employment, are realized immediately, while others, such as greater educational attainment and earnings, are realized later when children reach adulthood. Research suggests that expanding early learning initiatives would provide benefits to society of roughly $8.60 for every $1 spent. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
