Early Successes Last A Lifetime
At RGEC’s Collet Park ES afterschool program, Site Supervisor Lori Moralez makes a constant effort to give the kindergartners in the program extra support and attention both emotionally and academically in helping each student build a strong foundation.
Each day, Lori sits with the kindergartners and helps them hone in on their core academic skills including reading. She also is in communication with the kindergarten staff at the school which enables Lori to individualize the help she gives each student, depending on their respective areas of need. As a result, the kindergartners in our afterschool programming are preforming at higher levels than their peers, particularly, in reading. This development has been noticed and commented upon by both Collet Park teachers and administrators. It has provided direct evidence of the strength of our Program. It is not just words, but in fact, it is outcomes.
According to an article on the importance of early education featured in the New York Times, students who learn more in kindergarten appear to earn more and ultimately save more for retirement; they are less likely to become teenage parents, and are more likely to live longer. They also find that being in a good kindergarten class had a relatively constant effect on earnings across income levels - for poor, middle-class and high-income children. Moreover, the same study has shown that being in a standout class generally leads to about a 7% increase in annual earnings by the age of 27. So, while the story of Collet Park seems innocent on its surface, its impact can lead to extraordinary changes in the lives of these children. No small affair.
RGEC emphasizes academic enrichment. The kindergartners in our Collet Park ES program are just one example of the life-long positive impact that result from engaging not only the kindergartners, but all of our students each and every day.
