“It’s often hard to leave your child at daycare, but Quality Counts can make a parent feel better. Young children are constantly learning, and it’s imperative that their environment support their growth. That’s what Quality Counts does by reviewing classrooms and promoting education for child care providers.”

Dudley Brown, parent

Consider the numbers:

90 the percentage of a child’s brain architecture created during early childhood
4 the age of the average child when, in terms of brain development, the stage has been set for all future learning experiences
3 the number of major, long-term studies in early childhood development linking children who participate in high quality learning environments to ultimate school and life success
1 the number of chances you have to help prepare your child for the future by placing him or her in a high quality learning environment that offers optimal learning experiences
