Early Life and Education
Children develop social skills, self-worth, world perception and moral outlook during their early years of life. These experiences are crucial for their subsequent success and well-being.
Early childhood development is a crucial factor in the health and well-being of children, particularly in low-income countries where educational opportunities may be scarce. A child’s brain grows rapidly between birth and age eight, becoming increasingly complex as their cognitive capabilities expand.
Positive factors, such as stable and responsive relationships with parents and other adults, and safe and supportive environments, can set children on a stronger course for life. Conversely, negative experiences and environments can have long-lasting and detrimental effects on a child’s development.
