Last January, New Hampshire won a $3.8 million federal Pre-School Development Planning Grant to craft a pre-school strategy for our children. After months of hard work across several state agencies, the University of New Hampshire, and many community organizations, I can report that every pre-school child in New Hampshire is learning.

Of course, not all children are enrolled in formal pre-school programs. Some are in childcare. Some are home with their parents, or other caregivers. But they are all learning, because the developing human brain is an unparalleled learning machine. We must take advantage of this short window when children are capable of unmatched levels of learning. This child-centered focus is the key to New Hampshire’s early childhood education strategy.
