Boone County Rancher Jay Wolf explains why early childhood matters even to those who aren’t educators, social workers or caregivers of young children.
Children's ability to identify numbers and letters along with possessing a working vocabulary often are used as benchmarks to assess school readiness, but they don't tell the whole story.
Children in 431 Nebraska child care programs are benefiting from their providers' participation in our state's quality improvement and rating system. More children now will enter kindergarten ready to learn, and that's good news for children, parents, providers and taxpayers.
