Early Life and Education
Children (ages three to eight) are entirely dependent on their adult caregivers during this period, which makes these years critical in a child’s development and can have lasting impacts on their eventual success in life.
Early childhood education encompasses a range of activities designed to stimulate cognitive and social development in preschoolers before they enter kindergarten. While some programs emphasize academic readiness, others take an integrated approach that prioritizes mental and emotional readiness.
In addition to academic classes that focus on teaching methods, many schools also provide courses that address the psychosocial aspects of early learning. Through these seminars, students gain an understanding of why play is so important and how it can be utilized as a teaching aid.
