  • Early Childhood provides Kindergarten-Readiness support for youngsters

    In older times, many children did not begin learning to read until they started school, and “starting school” meant going to first grade. Everyone did not attend kindergarten, and all-day kindergarten was a rarity indeed. Preschool was almost unheard of.

    Contrast this with today’s emphasis on early learning, and it is clear that many things have changed.
