Research shows that good care and education contribute to children’s social–emotional, intellectual, language, and motor development. Healthy development in the early years provides the building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, responsible citizenship, lifelong health, strong communities, and successful parenting of the next generation. At Yocha Dehe Academy we provide a high-quality program by working closely with family members and providing their children with environments, materials, and relationships that enrich learning and development. When infants and toddlers receive care in a relationship that consistently meets their physical and emotional needs, that relationship becomes a base for exploration and discovery.
