What happens when children aren’t ready to start school?
Often, when children are not prepared, they begin school with a deficit in abilities - cognitive, social/ emotional, and physical - leading to a wide range of problems that are significantly more difficult and exponentially more expensive to address later. The experiences and interactions that take place between birth and school will greatly determine their success.
