The FIRST 5 YEARS will deﬁne Forsyth County for a generation. It isn’t a cliché. It’s a fact. Our children really are our greatest asset – and our undeniable future. Yet, tragically, the potential of too many of our youngest children is unrealized here in Forsyth County. THAT’S BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE AGE 5 WILL LAST A LIFETIME. The ﬁrst ﬁve years of life are a time of rapid brain development, a critical and once-only window of opportunity when a child’s mind becomes wired for success – or hardship, low self-esteem and poor coping skills – in school and in life. Today, 1,200 four-year-olds who are eligible do not have access to quality programs due to lack of teachers, classrooms and resources. Imagine the community – and future – we could create if every child had access to quality early-development programs. PRE-K PROGRAMS ARE WORKING. HELP US EXPAND THEIR IMPACT.
