“Early childhood development is the compelling economic, social and moral issue of our time. It helps provide all children with the opportunity they deserve to develop their natural abilities. It is also the most effective way to build the workforce and customer base we need. Investing in young children’s healthy development is a financial and social imperative for any country.”

– John Pepper, Former Chairman and CEO, Procter & Gamble; Co-Chair, ReadyNation CEO Task Force on Early Childhood
