Early Life and Education
Early childhood years, from birth to age six, are essential for learning. This period allows a child’s biological brain development and the acquisition of skills necessary for success in school, work and life.
Over the centuries, people have contributed to shaping early education and how it operates today. From John Locke’s concept of tabula rasa to Maria Montessori’s emphasis on observation and Jean Piaget and Vygotsky’s theories about cognitive development, there has been a wealth of influential contributions that have helped create this field today.
Early childhood education plays a significant role in helping children build an effective emotional foundation. This involves teaching them self-regulation of emotions, expression of feelings and confidence in oneself. These lessons will serve them well throughout life when solving problems and taking calculated risks.
