Early Life and Education
Early childhood education is essential for children’s growth and development. During this time, they learn many fundamental skills and concepts such as shapes, colors, how to count objects, and spelling words correctly.
Children learn about their world through their initial interactions with people outside their family circle. Access to quality care, stable relationships with caregivers and teachers, as well as an environment that stimulates their brains are essential elements for a child’s healthy development.
Despite its numerous advantages, more than 175 million children worldwide do not enroll in pre-primary education programs. This deprives countries of the human capital needed to reduce inequality and foster peaceful, prosperous societies.
