Because 85% of brain development occurs in the first three years of life, it is important to expose children to rich, engaging vocabulary to set the foundation for cognitive ability, literacy, and school readiness.

Research has shown that children who enter Kindergarten "prepared" and ready to learn will be less likely to be held back in school, drop out, require special educational services, develop chronic health problems or enter the criminal justice system.
