Early Life and Education
Research has demonstrated that the first three years of a child’s life are critical for their development. Studies have indicated that experiences and interactions during this time shape brain structure and lay the groundwork for future learning.
Early education of a child relies heavily on their relationship with parents and primary caregivers. These interactions form the basis of secure attachment that will guide them as they grow into healthy, productive adults.
Parents are the primary educators for children’s early education, but many other factors also play a role. These include socioeconomic status, culture and the environment they inhabit.
