Is Early Education the Solution?
Solutions are needed as early as possible to help Maine’s children become healthy and successful.
Evidence-based effective solutions include access to affordable and accessible:
- High quality early care and education
- Early literacy, home visiting, parenting education
- Early screening and abuse and violence prevention
- High quality health, mental health, and oral health care
None of these supports alone can guarantee success. The real answer is a coordinated set of programs and supports designed to meet the needs of young children and their families—a comprehensive, coordinated early childhood system.
