Early Childhood Education lays a critical foundation for lifelong learning. Children who attend an early childhood program are more likely to achieve academic success not only in school but also in the workforce. Teachers equipped to serve this population are powerful resources who can use education as a tool to transform families in communities in Nevada and across the world.
