Do you want your child to have an edge over other students in school? The secret is to make your child well prepared for primary education. Read to know more about early childhood care and education.

Hundreds and crores of children are uneducated in our country. Everybody is desperate to provide a good education to their children. The importance of academics is well known. All parents know that education is the key to securing a good future for the child. So, why not enrol your child for early childhood care and education which will definitely give him or her edge over other students.

There is a lot of competition even to get into the primary schools. However, early childhood care and education prepares your child for a brighter future. Following are some facts and advantages about early childhood education and care. 

Good Advantage and Beginning

Pre-primary education allows your child to prepare for learning and make a path in this world. Pre-primary education or ECCE provides a positive beginning to learning and these kids have more advantage than others who directly start at a later age. Early childhood care and education is more advanced in developed countries. It ensures that your child does not lag behind in primary school because he or she has already understood the basics in ECCE. In India, there are private preschools in cities for children who are economically well-off.

Objectives of Early Childhood Care and Education

There are many advantages of beginning education at an early age. It is has been found that countries with a good ECCE system, have lower number of dropouts. Education should ideally begin at a tender age. The first learning experience impacts your child’s mind very intensely and whatever is taught has a strong and positive effect on the child. This kind of education affects the child’s physical as well as social development and allows a healthy start to life. People who teach the children at this age play an important role in the child’s life.

Key Benefits of Early Childhood Care and Education

Let us take a quick look at the key benefits for early childhood care and education.
  • It boosts cognitive skills

  • It improves concentration

  • It has a positive impact on school enrolment

  • Holistic development on all aspects including socio-emotional as well as physical development.

  • Provides a strong foundation to language development.

  • Develops team spirit and provides your toddlers a great environment.

Early Childhood Care and Education in India

Every child should ideally have access to high quality care and education. Many a time only children from well to do families have access to ECCE however that should not be the case. As more and more mothers enter the workforce, there is greater need for ECCE. You cannot leave the child alone at home; hence it is the duty of the government also to enable access to early education for kids from all backgrounds. Government school teachers in India are being trained and ‘Anganwadis’ are being set up for all small children. These ‘Anganwadis’ are being run to provide pre-primary education so that India also can be on par as per education standards. The 0-6 age group is crucial for education and hence there is emphasis on early childhood care.

Future Success with Early Childhood Care and Education

Basically, your child needs to be prepared for school or kindergarten. ECCE provides holistic development so your child does not find difficulty once he starts school. Basic mathematical concepts and writing skills are also imparted at an early age itself. Inquisitiveness develops which in turn helps your child to begin asking questions and become a life-long learner.

High quality care and education helps your child to learn skills like cooperating with others and getting along well with peers. Provide your child with a bright future and get ready to begin early education.
