Early childhood education is essential for the development of children from birth until age eight, providing them with social-emotional skills necessary for academic success – making it one of the most significant investments a country can make, according to UNESCO.
These formative years foster invaluable relationships and partnerships with teachers, peers and family members. These years are crucial for brain development, leading to improved health outcomes throughout a person’s lifetime.
