Mounting evidence illustrates that early education plays a critical role in the cognitive and social-emotional development of children.

And now a third phase of the Niagara County Early Child Care Quality Improvement Project (QIP) has an opportunity to make a significant impact on the larger early childhood education community in Niagara County by reaching more than 6,000 children entering kindergarten, their families and educators over the next three years.

Funded by The Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation and facilitated by Niagara University, the Niagara QIP has commenced a ‚ÄúTransition to Kindergarten‚ÄĚ phase of its trailblazing program, which will focus on strengthening academic and social-emotional transitions for children entering kindergarten from various early childhood preschool and home-based settings throughout Niagara County.
