Early Life and Education
Early experiences have an enormous influence on children’s brain architecture and ability to learn, which is why UNESCO considers early childhood education to be such a worthy investment, with lasting effects for future learning, behavior, and health outcomes.
Children learn through play and activities for the first eight years of life, making this period essential in their development as they gain an awareness of themselves and develop relationships with others.
An effective school-family partnership is key for successful early education outcomes, providing children with consistent, responsive caregiving relationships as well as safe environments that support child development.
