    “The early bird catches the worm” is an old saying that is as true for learning as it is for life in general. For example, children who participate in early learning opportunities at the Carroll County Child Development Center are six times more likely to be prepared for kindergarten than are their peers who do not attend and who come from similar socio-economic backgrounds.
