The first place a child begins learning is at home. Through daily interactions with parents and family members, a child grows, develops, and begins to build the basic architecture of their brain. Research has consistently shown the encouraging results from quality early learning experiences for a child. Early education could not be more important, not just for keeping our children healthy and safe, but also for effectively preparing them to enter school and succeed in life. Idaho AEYC offers resources to support all parents in their roles as caregivers, educators, and advocates.
