Early learning experiences help shape children’s development and set the stage for them to be healthy, happy, productive adults. Some economists estimate that for every $1 spent on programs for children, there is a $2 social and economic benefit to Canada. Children with physical, intellectual, social and emotional challenges benefit significantly from early intervention and inclusive programming.
