Why It Matters
What We Know: 85% of the human brain develops in the first five years of life. That’s a fact that cannot be ignored. Fifty years ago, we did not know that 85% of the brain develops before the fifth year of life. But now we do.
The New Mexico Early Childhood Development Partnership (NMECDP), a public/private partnership, recognizes that when our young children are deprived of quality early life experiences the result is a lack of readiness for school and life, depriving our state of its most precious “potential” resource.
NMECDP partners with business, government, policy makers, early childhood care professionals and schools to improve and develop New Mexico's educational system, and provide greater opportunity for our children.
