Early Life and Education
Childhood experiences can have a lasting effect on a child’s development, and those between birth and age 8 are especially influential. This period is considered one of remarkable brain development, offering children an invaluable chance to lay down foundations for future learning, behavior and health.
Experiences they have during this period can be either positive or negative, setting them on a lifelong path towards health and productivity. Therefore, UNESCO advocates for high-quality early childhood education as an essential social determinant of both health and economic development.
A strong school-family partnership can significantly reduce the likelihood of traumatic experiences that could have long-lasting effects on a child’s ability to thrive. Furthermore, it ensures young children have access to consistent and responsive caregiving relationships.
