Early childhood education (ECE) refers to all activities and services that guide the growth and development of young children before they enter kindergarten. These programs are usually delivered by adults, such as parents, daycare providers, babysitters and teachers.

The science behind the importance of ECE is based on decades of neuroscience and behavioral research. Using this knowledge, public policymakers can support a strong start to a child’s life. Currently, early childhood education is the focus of numerous initiatives, including Head Start and the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge tenet.
