Early Childhood Development

Birth through age five

We believe that quality early childhood education is the basis for a life of economic freedom. In fact, we believe that early childhood is the most critical stage for children’s social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual development.

Child development research tells us that children of this age:

  • Think concretely, not abstractly.
  • Learn through their senses.
  • Strive for independence.
  • Do not yet understand that others have rights.
