It is Early Education Month. Help us share the importance of quality early education for all children.

Sixty percent of Louisiana children begin kindergarten behind their peers and children who begin school behind generally remain behind. Significant investments are needed to increase and improve access to quality early care and education for Louisiana’s children to best prepare them for success in school and in life.
