High Quality Learning Environments

" A three year old child is a being who gets almost as
much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it 
does out of finding a small green worm."  
~Bill Vaughan

The importance of High Quality Learing environments has been precipitated by Economist Professor James Heckman. He has done tons of research on why kids who have a great start have a better chance at avoiding the major pitfalls we see so prevalent today. Families prove to be a major source of contributing to the development of young children. This we knew, but it's nice to hear people talking about it....
