Why is early childhood education so important?
Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) is more than preparation for primary school. It aims at the holistic development of a child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs in order to build a solid and broad foundation for lifelong learning and wellbeing. ECCE has the possibility to nurture caring, capable and responsible future citizens. - UNESCO
A child’s early years lay the formidable foundation for their future development, providing building blocks for lifelong learning, including cognitive and social skills. Many researchers have emphasized the need for early education as an essential base for a child’s future success.
Promotes a child’s brain development
90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of 5. So it is highly imperative to utilize these golden years to ensure the child gets a good start in life. Research also shows that early childhood education not only encourages a passion for learning but also inculcates good habits that will last a lifetime.
Socializing with others will be a piece of cake
Early education plays an integral role in a child’s ability to socialize. Socializing with people other than family can help children gain self confidence and simplify the educational process in the future. It requires expert guidance, enactment and the active participation of adults. Learning how to share and cooperate can pave the way for future success.
Makes learning fun
Early childhood educators know how to make learning fun through learning kits, fun activities, and interactive sessions. Once children realize that learning can be fun and rewarding, they can relinquish the challenges of the learning process along the way and become active learners for life.
Enhances their memory power
Young children have short attention spans. Their desire to learn and explore often leaves them unable to concentrate even on the tiniest things. Early childhood education can help children explore new environments, opportunities, and connections. It also helps enhance their memory power to a great extent, and it helps children perform better in groups, concentrate on individual projects and follow up instructions precisely.
Early childhood education helps children take full advantage of their capability, skills and talents. Therefore studies show that children who have access to Early Childhood Education tend to perform better at life. It is also proven that early childhood education can benefit society as a whole.
