I donated in support of this campaign.
The early years are crucial. At-risk children attending quality early education programs can make great progress and enter kindergarten at grade level. The achievement gap opens long before preschool begins; it starts at birth and once a child falls behind, they stay behind. The rewards of early childhood learning do not simply benefit the individual, however. There are positive repercussions for the entire community. Every dollar invested in early care and education generates a savings return of more than $16! The savings accrue from reduced costs for special education, public welfare, criminal justice, and additional social services. I firmly believe that we are all responsible for building the healthy foundations of the next generation.
Just a small donation will go a long way to helping me meet my goal for SNYDER UNION MIFFLIN CHILD DEVELOPMENT INC
