Early childhood education lays the groundwork for future learning. It also has an impact on the economy, which is a key reason higher education is choosing to put a focus on early learning. The University of Idaho's talk series, Vandal Voices, will host a discussion on childhood learning and the impacts it has.

U of I's Executive Officer Mike Sats and Beth Oppenheimer, executive director for Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children, will discuss "The Business Case for Early Childhood Education."

"In addition to the benefits that high-quality early learning has on children, early education also impacts the workforce," Oppenheimer stated in a release. "Access to affordable early learning programs allow parents to participate in the workforce, which helps businesses to attract and retain talent and ultimately strengthens our economy."
