“Current research in brain development clearly indicates the emotional, physical, and intellectual environment a child is exposed to in the early years of life has a profound impact on how the brain is organized. The experiences a child has with respect to parents and caregivers significantly influence how a child will function in school and later in life,” stated Executive Director Amanda Hoy.
“The California Children and Families Act of 1998 (Proposition 10) is designed to provide children prenatal to age five with a comprehensive, integrated system of early childhood development services. Through integration of health care, quality child care, parent education and effective intervention programs for families at risk, children and their parents and caregivers will be provided with the tools necessary to foster secure, healthy, and loving attachments. These attachments will lay the emotional, physical and intellectual foundation for every child to enter school ready to learn and develop to their full potential."
