Children usually don't start elementary school until they turn 6 years old. Early education programs are trying to change that.

The older we get, the harder it is for our brains to absorb information. So it's only natural that we start teaching our kids to develop life skills at a young age.

Celebree Learning Centers is doing just that. It's a leader in early childhood education and development. Anchor Kelly Swoope sat down with Lisa Henkel, Chief Operating Officer, and Tiffany Zimmerman, District Director, to see why these programs are so beneficial to children.

Celebree Learning Centers is hosting an open house on Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at all 23 of its locations. You do have to register in advance if you plan to go.
