Early Life and Education
Early childhood development can be an extremely transformative period in a child’s life. They develop social skills, self-esteem and world views during this stage, which then shape their moral development later in life.
Children also use this time to develop cognitive abilities that will enable future learning and success at school.
Children also gain emotional skills such as confidence, positive self-belief, and emotional regulation that will serve them later for activities such as problem solving and healthy risk taking.
As such, it is vital that children receive an exceptional early childhood education. This can be accomplished by emphasizing factors like parent engagement, small class sizes and teacher interaction.
