Learning begins well before a child starts kindergarten. A child’s development begins prenatally, and the first five years of a child’s life are critical to lifelong learning. Since parents play a vital role in their child’s future school success, our programs focus on engaging parents and offering them education and support.

 

A Solid Foundation For Lifelong Learning

Did you know that quality early learning programs contribute to higher IQs among children, boost their future academic and career success, build positive social-emotional skills, and even help prevent incidences of chronic diseases later in a child’s life? JWB’s invests in an innovative model called the Quality Early Learning Initiative – and it’s been successful at giving children a solid foundation for lifelong learning.
