Early Life and Education
Through their lives, children acquire a great deal of information about themselves and the world around them. They discover things like the alphabet, shapes, and colors.
Parenting and primary caregivers often teach these skills to children, but for them to fully develop they also need active stimulation and socialization with other people.
Early childhood education is the process of nurturing this critical period in a formal educational setting. Programs focus on social and emotional learning, cognitive development, and preparing students for future school success.
Early childhood development and education are essential indicators of a country’s health and its place within the global community. Furthermore, it forms part of UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals that aim to guarantee that all countries provide access to quality early childhood development and care services.
