Children are born learning, and what they learn from life's earliest moments will dramatically impact their later success. The amount, type, quality and consistency of a child's educational experience may dramatically impact and influence their potential for future academic success and overall well-being. For children living in poverty, the research is unequivocal. Children enrolled in high-quality programs early in life enjoy significant lifetime cognitive and social-emotional gains as they graduate from high school and attend college in higher numbers, have greater lifetime earnings and delay the start of parenthood significantly. With this in mind, GKFF has invested heavily in expanding the availability of high-quality education for low-income children and families in Tulsa County.
