Early Learning Starts at Home

As the first place a child begins learning, the habits and knowledge gained in the home build a foundation for their future. Through daily interactions with parents and family members, a child grows, develops, and begins to form the basic architecture of their brain.

Research indicates that quality early learning experiences at home provide children with skills and abilities necessary to succeed in school and to enhance the lifelong love of learning. To support the efforts of parents, educators, and caregivers, Idaho AEYC offers resources that strengthen early learning opportunities and that help our children thrive.
