Importance of early learning
What is 'early learning'?
Young children learn new things from everything they experience since their development happens so quickly.
Why is early learning important?
According to research, children who start ahead tend to stay ahead. By the age of two, significant inequalities in a child's development are noticeable and tend not to heal over time. The early years provide the groundwork for a child's whole existence. Children are capable to learners from birth, and the most effective learning takes place in caring, upbeat, and exciting situations. Early learning experiences are crucial for this reason. We are giving children the best chances to reach their potential by establishing these settings.
What is a 'daycare' / 'childcare' and 'early learning'?
There is huge difference in this facilities. – 'daycare' or 'childcare' gives the impression that the service we provide is simply 'care'. It's much more than that: it's care plus education. Early learning captures the essence of what our Nursery is all about - nurturing and stimulating environments that inspire a love of learning.
