Early Life and Education
Early childhood is an incredibly important period in a child’s development, when they begin to acquire language and social skills as well as academic readiness. Furthermore, this period sees children becoming dependent on their parents, caregivers and others for assistance in various ways.
Teachers are essential during this period for helping children recognize their abilities and grow into healthy, content individuals. Not only do they impart basic reading, writing and math skills to students; but also impart fundamental ideas from science, history and culture.
Early childhood education should ensure that every child is prepared for school and has the necessary tools to be successful in life. As such, UNESCO, OECD and other international organizations recognize high-quality early childhood education as a key economic indicator.
