Enrichment for all children

I was able to stay home to rear my son who is now twenty five. I did take him to daycare two mornings a week for social skills and enrichment and to preschool when he turned four. When he entered kindergarten I couldn't help noticing how far ahead of many of his classmates he was in learning and he has remained bright and curious ever since that time. I know how fortunate we both were and I know not everyone can have that same experience. But I want us to do our best to come as close to that as possible for every child and every parent.

I believe that the best hope for our children is to have excellent early learning experiences. This is important for working families but it is equally important for those families who simply don't have the ability to provide a stimulating and educational environment for their children whatever the reason. What we need to keep in mind here is the child and her/his need to experience the best opportunities to blossom regardless of her/his home situation. We need early enrichment for all children in order to compete in the global world but most of all simply to enable children to grow into healthy, happy, contributing individuals.
