If you want to make a lucrative investment in a futures fund, you should consider investing in our children’s future.
Last month, some important data was released about how well children are doing when they start school. Released in April, the 2012 Australian Early Development Index 2012 measured how well children across Australia are growing up – it looks at the social, physical and cognitive development of children in Australia who have just started school.
This research shows most children in Australia are on track in key developmental areas. Unfortunately, it highlighted 1 in 5 children starting school have already fallen behind in at least one of these critical areas of development.
Before our children put their uniforms on for the first time, we have a role to play in helping them to develop important skills to help them later in life.
Why is this timing so important? Why must we start before the bell?
International research shows that once a child falls behind they are likely to stay behind. Once a child falls behind, it is almost impossible for them to catch up to their peers.
