Business Case for Early Childhood Development

Source: Communities Together for Children

Excerpt: "Across Canada, more than a quarter of children are vulnerable before they even get to school. Most vulnerable children are not poor. This high rate of early vulnerability imposes social and economic costs.   In our community, over one-third (35%) of the children are vulnerable in at least one aspect of their development, by senior kindergarten. Fact:  Early childhood development is a prime time investment opportunity for society, providing greater returns than any other period in life."
