Early Investments, A Lifetime of Success.
We're working to lift up all Ohio children.
The trajectory of development during the earliest years positions children for future success and a foundation of lifelong positive education and health outcomes. Not all children, however, have the same early experiences. By age 3, low income learners have half the vocabulary as their high-income peers leading them to be up to two years behind when they enter the kindergarten classroom.
Public investments in high-quality prenatal to three interventions for Ohio children deliver 13% ROI per year.
