Early Childhood Years have a long-term impact on Learning
Do you find your child curious all the time? Is (s)he always observing things and asking questions?
Children are full of curiosity, from an early age they start observing things and learn a lot from their surroundings.
Do you think the traditional lecture method of imparting knowledge is enough? Well, think again! You cannot learn to ride a bicycle by watching youtube or you cannot learn cooking just by watching, do you? The answer is no. The same way your child doesn’t learn just by listening to the teacher or reading from a book. Practical implementation is required to learn and explore new things.
Research has revealed that early childhood is a time where developmental changes are happening that can have profound and lasting consequences for a child’s future. This emerging science makes clear the importance and complexity of working with young children from infancy through the early elementary years. Young children thrive when they have secure, positive relationships with adults who are knowledgeable about how to support their development and learning.
