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. Easily donate and receive a charitable tax receipt through CanadaHelps.org.
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.
