Title:Proven benefits of early childhood interventions
Short Description:Key findings from this report indicate that early childhood intervention programs have been shown to yield benefits in academic achievement, behavior, educational progression and attainment, delinquency and crime, and labor market success, among other domains.
Annotation:Key findings from this report indicate that early childhood intervention programs have been shown to yield benefits in academic achievement, behavior, educational progression and attainment, delinquency and crime, and labor market success, among other domains. Interventions with better-trained caregivers and smaller child-to-staff ratios appear to offer more favorable results. Well-designed early childhood interventions have been found to generate a return to society ranging from $1.80 to $17.07 for each dollar spent on the program.
