Can you believe it is March already? If you have school-aged children, now is the time to be thinking of camps and programs to enroll for summer. If you are a parent of a child age 1 – 5, you may want to look into child care options for the summer or fall. It may seem early, but planning early will help. Choosing quality care can be challenging and overwhelming for parents.
To help parents who need to find someone to watch after their child during these early develpment years, First 5 LA has launched “Quality Child Care Lasts a Lifetime,” a campaign aimed at information parents about the life-long benefits of quality early eare and education and tips to help them make informed decisions.
Research shows that children who receive quality care show more advanced language skills, do better in school, have fewer behavioral problems, and develop better social skills. Ultimately, they are more likely to graduate from high school and succeed in their academic careers.
