Last month I introduced you to First 5 LA’s, Ready Set Grow program, a nonprofit that educates parents on the importance of Quality Care in their children’s lives. To help parents who need to find someone to watch after their child during these early development years, First 5 LA has launched “Quality Child Care Lasts a Lifetime,” a campaign aimed at informing parents about the life-long benefits of quality early care and education and tips to help them make informed decisions.
Did you know that children that receive quality childcare are more likely to develop social and learning skills at a younger age? According to First 5 LA, many parents are not aware the first 5 years of their child’s life may determine the level of success they will reach as adults. It also helps children maintain a better relationship with other children, teachers and adults. The benefits of early quality childcare continue into adulthood!
The most valuable resource you can provide for your child is a safe and educational environment to stimulate their learning and growth. As a young mom I didn’t have the type of resources readily available to parents today to make important decisions about child care. However, I’m thankful that a resource such as Ready Set Grow exists to help educate many parents on the importance of being proactive when making decisions on your child’s care.
