New Early Learning Fact Sheet: Focus on Kindergarten

Kindergarten is an essential part of a child’s education. High-quality early education from preschool through third grade helps children acquire critical cognitive, language, social, and emotional skills – establishing the foundation for all future learning. To learn more about this topic, please see our newest Early Learning Fact Sheet: Focus on Kindergarten!


AUGUST 2015

Early Learning Fact Sheet: Focus on Summer Learning 

More than 100 years of research shows that children lose skills in both math and reading over the summer when they are not regularly practicing these skills in school. High quality summer learning programs can prevent this summer slide, and help all children succeed in and beyond the classroom! To learn more about this topic, please see our Early Learning Fact Sheet: Focus on Summer Learning.
