Orange Children & Parents Together collectively smiled upon reading the recent Brookings research on quality early childhood education. Brookings’ description of “process quality” in an early childhood education program was like a window into one of our child development centers. The research stated how multiple studies show that for children, a rich learning environment is one where they experience interactions that are responsive, warm, sensitive to their perspectives, and plentiful in language. The quality of interactions in the care-giving setting plays a crucial role in allowing young children to explore, learn, and ultimately to reach their potential. Orange Children & Parents Together is composed of highly skilled educators dedicated to the nurturing of young children through meaningful experiences and research based curriculum. If we do not invest more today and do so wisely to build strong foundations for young children, we risk forgoing the gains that can be realized through healthier, more productive, and better citizens in the future.
