What if you could affect your child’s entire life by creating a few simple habits during their first 3 years?

You can! That’s why quality counts.

The future of our children, our schools, our businesses, our communities, our state and our world depend on quality interactions now—during a child’s first 3 years of life—when vital brain development takes place.
