The Impact of a Strong Early Childhood System in New York

The impact of a stronger early childhood system in New York is not limited to just parents and children. It affects everyone. High quality early childhood education can help communities supply a reliable, skilled workforce to attract good jobs and new employers. It also provides a return on investment, driving local economic activity while reducing the need for costly services as a child grows.

A strong early childhood system is also important to New York’s future. As our state continues to compete in a more global economy, our workforce will be expected to possess the analytic and critical thinking skills that begin developing in young children.
