About Us / Mission Statement
We are Early Childhood Educators and preschool owners located in Nassau and Suffolk County New York. Our experience with educating young children spans over 30 years.
Many legislators and advocates want our government to fund a “universal” preschool program for all three and four year old children. They use a small body of research to support their position that children who attend quality preschools are more likely to stay in school, get better paying jobs and are less likely to end up in the criminal justice system.
What advocates neglect to tell you is that the children who achieve the greatest benefits from publicly funded early childhood programs are the disadvantaged and at risk. In hopes to gain political support for “universal” programs, they overgeneralize the benefits from these small scale studies to the general population.
This campaign is resulting in a middle class entitlement program that does not promise to reach the kids that would benefit most. The research is very clear, it is the poor and at risk who benefit from these types of programs. There is no evidence to prove that a large scale government intervention will solve the problems that are rooted from poverty.
Our objective is to encourage our elected officials to prioritize preschool and ensure our limited resources reach those children that are most in need.
