Science shows that a child’s experiences during the earliest years are vital to building the foundation for lifelong individual success—in school and in life. Now economists are studying the costs and benefits of high-quality early care and preschool. And they’re worried—not because we’re spending too much but because we’re spending too little where it matters most.
Are We Crazy About Our Kids? brings to life the class studies of Perry Preschool and other initiatives conducted by Nobel Laureate James Heckman, former Federal Reserve economist Arthur Rolnick and others demonstrating how high-quality early care and preschool yield huge benefits—for both the children and for society.
Thanks to a grant from Civic Canopy, we are excited to be hosting a screening for our donors, intersted community member, families, and local business professionals.
Please join us in the new Fort Logan Northgate 3-8 School library on August 5th from 6-7:30pm. Kellie Teter, Maternal Child Health Program Manager at Denver Public Health, will be introducing the film and moderating any discussion. We will also have several honored guests there to help answer questions and provide awareness about the importance of early childhood education.
Space is limited so RSVP today to Crissey McNally 303.734.3354.
