The Power of Your Impact
Did you know that in the long term, for every $1 invested in quality early childhood, the state yields a $7.30 return on investment?
Quality early childhood education drives short and long-term economic development for the state because it supports the workforce of today and develops the workforce of tomorrow. When you give to Jefferson Ready Start Network you are:
- Providing children with access to high quality early education opportunities no matter their family’s economic background.
- Funding affordable early care and education that allows parents to work or pursue a college degree.
- Developing the future workforce of Jefferson Parish.
- Increasing local support and investment in early care and education.
