The first five years of a child’s life are crucial in building the foundation for educational attainment and greatly impacts success or failure in later life. What are we doing in Newton and Massachusetts to give our students the building blocks they need for future success?
JOIN US on Wednesday, October 16th from 7:00 – 8:45 pm at the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton, 675 Watertown Street for a discussion of early childhood education.
