A Growing Need for Quality Preschool Education
Recent headline-making studies are providing additional reasons to consider starting a new childcare franchise with education-focused Kiddie Academy. Growing evidence supports the need for high quality preschool education, prompting response from lawmakers with programs such as the Race to the Top fund.
Here are some highlights of an article by Motoko Rich published in the New York Times on 10/21/2013:
- “The National Governors Association, in a report this month calling on states to ensure that all children can read proficiently by third grade, urges lawmakers to increase access to high-quality child care and prekindergarten classes and to invest in programs for children from birth through age 5.”
- “A lot of states are saying, ‘Let’s get to the early care providers and get more of them having kids come into kindergarten ready,’ ” said Richard Laine, director of education for the National Governors Association. That way, he said, “we’re not waiting until third grade and saying, ‘Oh my gosh, we have so many kids overwhelming our remediation system.’ ”
Kiddie Academy’s Life Essentials program is already complete, meets or exceeds state standards, and has been accredited by AdvancEd. You can start a new Kiddie Academy franchise knowing that you have all the tools you need to give children a solid educational foundation that will benefit them throughout their lives.
