Research shows that a child’s brain develops most dramatically during the early years of life. Their experiences, environments, and relationships during this critical time shape how their brains develop and prepare them for kindergarten and beyond.

The benefits of high quality early care and education set children up for success in school and life. Children who have a quality start are more likely to do well in school, attend college, and have successful careers.

Child care providers and caregivers have an incredible role during these early years of a child’s development. 4Cs is here to support you in your work as a caregiver, to help you meet your program goals, and guide you through quality improvement opportunities.
