Long-Term Benefits of Early Childhood Education

Research shows that providing a high quality education for children before they turn five yields significant long-term benefits.

One well-known study, the HighScope Perry Preschool Study, found that individuals who were enrolled in a quality preschool program ultimately earned up to $2,000 more per month than those who were not. Young people who were in preschool programs are more likely to graduate from high school, to own homes, and have longer marriages.

Other studies, like The Abecedarian Project, show similar results. Children in quality preschool programs are less likely to repeat grades, need special education, or get into future trouble with the law.

Early childhood education makes good economic sense, as well. In Early Childhood Development: Economic Development with a High Public Return, a high-ranking Federal Reserve Bank official pegs its return on investment at 12 percent, after inflation.

"We transferred our daughter from another location to the TSD preschool this year and could not have made a better decision. The new facility is beautiful and filled with state-of-the-art amenities but, more importantly, the teachers and staff are warm and knowledgeable. Our daughter is in Mrs. Chetcuti’s class and absolute LOVES going to school each day. We’ve noticed a great improvement in our daughter’s interest in books, her ability to write and spell several new words and in her overall enjoyment for learning. From a parent experience, it does not get better than the TSD preschool. We look forward to the daily photos and posts we receive explaining what our daughter worked on that day and appreciate the overall great communication that we’ve experienced. Our minds are at ease knowing our daughter is in a clean, safe and encouraging environment that will surely prepare her for kindergarten this Fall."

"Over the past three years, my son has grown tremendously in the TSD Preschool program. As a student with special needs, the unconditional acceptance, patience, and care he has been shown by the teachers and staff, while pushing him to achieve, has allowed him to thrive. I am grateful for their constant communication and availability in working with my husband and I to incorporate lessons learned in Preschool into our home."

"I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how truly blessed and fortunate my husband and I feel to have Laura as Beckham's teacher this year. She is everything I could have hoped for in a teacher. Her bright smile, warm personality, and friendly nature with the kids create the most amazing environment in her class every day. Beckham truly can't wait to go to school every day and is sad when Saturday comes and he can't go. I love the way she infuses meaningful learning experiences into the play structure in her classroom. The pictures that show how she is encouraging and supporting literacy give me chills. Anyway, I just wanted you to know that her dedication is evident and a wonderful example for all the other teachers."
