The belief in “fadeout” (i.e., that benefits of early childhood education fade out as a child progresses through school), is a factor that can make obtaining financial support for early childhood education a challenge. Recently released research from Nobel Laureate James Heckman proves that “fadeout” does not occur. In fact, quality early childhood education – like that available at The Day Nursery – improves IQ and socio-emotional skills that provide profound benefits through adulthood. Read James Heckman’s rebuttal to claims of “fadeout” in the Washington Post.
Part of the article states: “In our recent work, we carefully study the effectiveness of a wide range of early childhood programs that received government funding, including Head Start. We find that all provide benefits and lasting effects to children who would have experienced lower quality care or have otherwise not received quality early childhood education.”
We continue to provide a curriculum in early childhood education that prepares each child for their future in learning.
Thank you for your continued support of The Day Nursery.
