What to Look for in a High-Quality Early Childhood Program

Research increasingly tells us that the first years of a child’s life are critical to shaping their future health and development. At Kinderberry Hill, we understand that high-quality childcare and education in the early years can make a positive difference for the future of your child. By making a thoughtful decision now, you can help your child develop the skills needed to be successful in school.

Why Is High-Quality Childcare Important?

Choosing childcare is one of the most important decisions a parent will ever make for their child. Not only does early education prepare young learners for school, but it also teaches kids valuable life skills to use beyond the classroom. High-quality early childhood programs should:

  • Support early brain development;
  • Support early childhood development;
  • Prepare children for kindergarten;
  • Provide children with life-long skills.
