Early Life and Education
Early education is a critical period of development for children. It is a time when they learn the most about the world, and develop the skills and attitudes they will need throughout their lives.
It is also important for children to learn about their emotional and social development so they can be prepared for the challenges of adolescence. The period between birth and age 8 is known as a “window of opportunity,” with the potential to ensure optimal brain development and lifelong benefits for each child.
The educational community is constantly researching and debating the best ways to educate young children. Some of the most influential early childhood theorists include Erikson, Froebel, and the Montessori method. These theories have shaped the classroom teaching styles we use today.
