CVSD recognizes the importance of early learning for all children.  A significant amount of research suggests that students have more success in school when they have had enriching early childhood experiences.  We understand that early learning occurs in all settings where children live and play.  

Children's experiences shape their motivation and approaches to learning, such as persistence, initiative, and flexibility; in turn, these dispositions and behaviors affect their learning and development.
