A child’s education begins at birth with external stimuli from the outside world. The impact of early childhood education on our children’s ever developing minds, especially between the ages of 0 to 5, is a huge factor in their continued successes throughout life. One area of significant development during these critical years is that of a child’s language and literary skills. Children who learn to love to read not only have a beautiful, imaginary world opened up to them, but also have measurably different successes in school, work, and life than others who do not possess proficient reading abilities.
As parents, teachers of our own children, and contributing members of the society in which we live, we need to become advocates for early and continuing literacy among our neighborhood children and adults.

Generosity: the habit of giving without expecting anything in return. This is an attribute that we hope that our children learn from us or the people surrounding them. This may not come as naturally as we hoped to a young child. Many times, as parents (and other influences), we will need to take the reigns to teach children about these qualities. Generosity usually begins with children sharing their possessions with other peers. Not only can you learn this important quality from home, but you can also incorporate it at school. We have 7 great ways to show your children what generosity is!
