First 2000 Days: Selecting a Quality Pre-K Program

Featured Audio

2000 days.  That's the span of time roughly from when a child is born and when they enter Kindergarten.  Children who attend a high-quality preschool have better high school graduation rates, fewer teen pregnancies and even a better chance of getting a job,  according to 2013 study written by university professors from across the nation.   In Ohio, there are more than 8,000 licensed preschools.  

Our panel discussion explores what makes a program a quality one and what do parents need to look for when deciding on one for their child.
