“According to major reports by the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, children who attend well-planned high-quality early childhood programs in which curriculum aims are specified and integrated across the domains tend to learn more and are better prepared to master the complex demands of formal schooling. While no single curriculum has been found to be superior, the reports’ recommendations call for addressing cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development as mutually supportive areas that require active attention in the preschool years.”
