The early years, ages birth to five, are critical years for a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. The Early Childhood Development section of The State of America’s Children 2010 shows that the development of poor children at nine months is already far behind their higher income peers. The learning gap widens from there, making it harder and harder for a child to catch up and further endangers them by increasing the likelihood that they will be trapped in the cradle to prison pipeline.
