There is tremendous plasticity in the brains of small children

There is tremendous plasticity (ability to change and grow) in the brains of small children below the age of three, two years before the start of Kindergarten. To lose this precious window of opportunity is to doom many lives to poverty, hopelessness, and despair. To intervene preparing the young child’s brains for curiosity and a thirst for learning, is to make millions of lives meaningful and hopeful. It nurtures healthy self-confidence (neither arrogance nor self-doubt) and the courage to know and stand up for what is right and what is wrong. It is to cultivate curiosity, and thirst for knowledge and life-long learning. It is to bring financial security. It is to bring emotional security free from fear and guilt. It builds a more equal society with opportunity for all.
