Did you know that quality early education programs can produce higher IQ’s, boost future academic and economic achievement and even help prevent incidences of chronic diseases and obesity in adulthood? Early learning programs also build socio-emotional traits which have greater effects on later life outcomes than most other cognitive skills a child will learn!

Aside from the obvious benefits to our children – there are economic incentives too. Every public dollar spent on preschool returns $7 through increased productivity and savings on public assistance and criminal justice. In a 2010 report, the Institute for a Competitive Workforce found that for every dollar invested in pre-K today, savings range from $2.50 to as much as $17 in the years ahead.

More than anyone, the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough County understands the impact of quality early education programs and continually works to support both our children’s and community’s future.
