Children during this period begin to acquire cognitive skills that will be invaluable as they progress through school and into adulthood. That is why UNESCO has identified high quality early childhood education as a key development goal.
The National College of Education offers an innovative early childhood program that emphasizes the critical components of early learning and development. The BAECE curriculum blends academic study with hands-on field experience for maximum impact.
