N-S Can't Afford Not To Develop Kids Program

The Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Council for Early Childhood Development says we can't afford to be without an early childhood development program.
Theresa Griffin tells CKBW News a provincial strategy would pay dividends in the long term through lower crime rates and the number of special needs kids.
The Council has called on the Dexter government to develop an early childhood development strategy covering children from birth to six years of age -- it says that strategy could include things like full day learning for 4-and-5 year olds and summer programs for school aged kids.
