Promoting Early Language and Literacy Development

The Zero To Three Organization is the national, cutting edge source for information on early childhood development. Their video “A Window To The World: Promoting Early Language and Literacy Development” shows that investing efforts and resources in a child’s language development from birth (zero) through the earliest years yields the best results for the child educationally, emotionally and socially. Providing tools, information and other supports to caregivers during the child’s crucial early years lays a foundation that “lasts forever” – and undergirds the child’s success in school and throughout life.

Return on investment is realized in money saved on the need for future “cures” like remedial reading, school drop out prevention, violence reduction, and other long term costs associated with educational failure such as incarceration, recidivism, joblessness, homelessness, chronic disease, and poverty.

The early childhood literacy programs of The Freadom® Road Foundation are rooted in the research of Zero To Three. We invite you to support our work by making a donation on our website. It’s as easy as one, two, three.
