The Francis Howell School District Early Childhood Program offers a comprehensive and supportive system of services for young children and their families. Research confirms that a child's most influential years of learning occur before the age of 5. Children grow and develop more in the early years of life than during any other period, and parents play a vital role in helping their children lay a firm foundation for all that follows.
