Early Life and Education

Early childhood (birth to eight years) presents children with the unique chance to acquire skills necessary for learning, behavior and health. It’s a period of rapid brain development and one of the most crucial times in terms of cognitive and emotional growth.

Parents are a child’s primary educators and the relationship they have with their primary caregivers plays an integral role in developing self-awareness and attachment. The quality of this relationship, along with the experiences shared during those early years, will set your child on a long-term path towards success.

ECE programs provide small class sizes, teacher interaction and a high level of physical and social stimulation to young children to ensure they receive the care and support necessary for healthy development. In turn, these experiences help build emotional skills such as confidence, positive self-respect and an eagerness to learn.
