Early Life and Education
Early childhood education (ECE) refers to both formal and informal educational programs that support children’s growth and development from birth until age five.
Research has demonstrated that a child’s brain development between birth and age 3 has long-lasting impacts on their future learning, behaviors and health. During this period, billions of connections between neurons form, creating the basis for lifelong learning abilities that will last well into adulthood.
Early education helps ensure children acquire the essential skills for academic success and life success. It builds a solid emotional foundation of confidence, self-expression and respect as well as positive self-belief so they can make informed decisions, feel secure in themselves and take healthy risks.
