Early Life and Education

Early in a child’s life, they acquire social-emotional skills and lay the foundation for learning. Additionally, this period marks when their brains start to grow at an exponential rate.

Establishing a solid foundation during these formative years is essential for children’s future success, when they face more complex social-emotional difficulties and academic endeavors. That is why research into early childhood development is so important.

Understanding how a child’s experiences from birth through age eight, and even prenatally, impact their learning capacity, behaviors and health is invaluable for policymakers and civic leaders when crafting their shared agenda. That is why the UN Sustainable Development Goals emphasize the significance of high-quality early childhood education as one of their targets.
