  • Christopher House's Early Childhood Development Services program was one of the first in the nation to receive accreditation under the National Association for the Education of Young Children's new and more rigorous standards.
  • "The seeds of failure in school are sometimes sown long before high-risk children school.
  • If we do not face the challenge head-on to provide the highest quality compensatory programs for our neediest children in their earliest years, then we better prepare for the consequences later on."
