An enormous return!
We believe that there is power in giving – power that effects enormous change.
Each gift has a tremendous impact when pooled together with other donations. Your contribution will help to ensure that there are accessible and relevant services that help parents and caregivers with children ages 0 to 6 in all aspects of their children’s development and learning.
The literature is overwhelmingly consistent in finding that exposure to high-quality education in the early years generally leads to improved cognitive and language development, as well as better numeracy abilities – all skills that are essential to succeed in today’s society. In addition to building fundamental skills, early child-hood education programs can help to identify learning or developmental delays at an early stage and provide children and parents with appropriate support.

Giving children the best start in life during their early years is one of the most important investments we can make in Canada’s future.
