Ensuring School Readiness

When a child is born their brain is 25% developed and by the time they arrive in Kindergarten their brain is 90% developed. Half of all children in Idaho are not prepared for school when they arrive. Giraffe Laugh ensures school readiness to change the trajectory of a child’s life from birth.
