Why Educate Early?

Data from longitudinal studies show that a host of societal issues – poverty, crime, teen pregnancy, school dropout rates, neglect/abuse of children, lack of skilled workers, and more – are addressed by focusing on the development of all our children, including low-income, beginning at birth. The social, emotional and intellectual foundation developed in those early years becomes the critical factor for future development and social integration. As a result, the stunning reality is that life outcomes are significantly determined by the time a child reaches first grade.

Calculations of the return on investment from early childhood education have repeatedly shown that for every dollar invested, society receives benefits of $4-$8 – and that’s only during the first 25 years of the at-risk child’s life. Therefore, an investment in Malaika’s early childhood education is one of the very best investments you can make.
