Thank you for your interest in supporting our program! We’re excited about the future we can create by partnering together to support children.
Investing in the education of young children provides a significant return on investment. It’s one of the best ways to make a lasting impact on the community. According to Nobel Prize winning economist James Heckman, investments in early childhood education can see a 13% return — that’s better than the stock market!
Central Wisconsin is facing a worsening workforce shortage. Supporting employees in their role of raising children helps attract and retain productive workers. Critical brain development occurs from ages 0–3 years, and fostering the ability of parents to give their children the interaction and care that they need during this crucial period not only maximizes the potential of our future workforce, but also keeps parent employees present in the workplace.
