High Quality learning programs ensure that children get the skills and education needed to be successful in life. Investing in the early years produces better health, education, social, and economic outcomes.
The evidence is clear.
Early childhood research matters – Quality Counts matters – because a child doesn’t get the option of repeating the first 4 years of his or her life. That means the time to act is now.
40 decades of research indicate best practices in child care and early learning, promoting healthy brain development and the importance of quality learning environments. Quality Counts strives to implement these best practices in participating programs across Spartanburg County to create a stronger, healthier community.
Preparing for the future means investing in our young children today.
