WHY (ECE) ?
WHY Early Childhood Education (ECE) IS A FOCUS AREA?

"The early years are recognized as a vital stage in children’s physical, linguistic, intellectual and emotional development. ECE refers not only to what is happening within the child, but also to the care that child requires in order to thrive."

Significance of “Early Childhood Education”

Early Childhood Education (ECE) It is widely acknowledged that the effects of what happens during the pre-natal period & during the earliest months and years of a child’s life can last a life time. This is because the kind of early care a child receives from parents, pre-school teachers and caregivers determines how a child learns and relates to school and life in general. It is during early care that a child develops all the key elements of emotional intelligence, confidence, curiosity, purposefulness, self control, connectedness, the capacity to communicate and co-cooperativeness.
Early Childhood Education (ECE) Emotional intelligence is now considered crucial for educational success.
