Research shows that a strong early childhood education can benefit student throughout their education and beyond. One 40-year study even showed that students who received strong early educations were more likely to have high school diplomas, jobs and higher earnings than their peers. But how early should kids start learning? And is an early education enough to keep student achievement high throughout middle and highs school?

We continue our summer series on education in Clark County with a look at early childhood education. How best should educators take on early teaching? And are there early warning signs to address before kids begin to fail in later grades?
