Giving Tuesday is right around the corner, and there has never been a better time to support early childhood education. As our first Giving Tuesday post mentioned, quality childhood education goes far beyond benefitting young learners and their families. By choosing to support Harbor Child Care, you are simultaneously advocating for your community and the future as a whole.
How Does Quality Childhood Education Benefit Society?
Research and Statistics
In total, the existing research suggests expanding early learning initiatives would provide benefits to society of roughly $8.60 for every $1 spent.
According to the National Forum on Early Childhood Policy and Programs, quality childhood education programs return between $4 and $9 for every dollar invested.
Economics Professor and Nobel Memorial Prize Winner James J. Heckman estimates the cost/benefit ratio to be $6.30.
In short, each dollar contributed to quality childhood education blossoms into so much more. Your donation to Harbor Child Care positively impacts everyone who walks through our doors and branches out to the people they have meaningful interactions with, the companies they work for or manage as adults, and the societies surrounding them.
