As the director of an early childhood program at the Scranton-Lackawanna Human Development Agency Head Start, I can attest to the benefits early learning has on our youngest citizens, who will grow up to be our region’s next leaders.
I have seen children come into our program who already are behind their peers at the age of just 3 or 4. These children often face challenges that are beyond their control and lack the resources needed to gain ground during this critical time in their development.
