If there's one thing preschool instructor Lindsey Kite wants the public to understand, it's that early care and education is no joke.
"Some think, 'Come on, they're just playing every day. Why do you need to be making this amount of money just to have my kid play?' But it's so much more
than that," Kite said.
Between the ages of 0 and 3, a
child's brain produces
700 new neural connections every second, making the first three years of life some of the most important, researchers say.
