Early Childhood Matters - Learning Begins Early

Jun 24, 2013 |

When you hear the phrase "early learning" do you think of preschool? The importance of preschool is increasingly widely acknowledged all over the world. Yet by the time most kids start preschool, around age 3, the most important building blocks for learning have already been put in place. That’s why this edition of Early Childhood Matters (June 2013) focuses on learning from birth to 3 years-old.

From the Bernard van Leer Foundation, this early childhood magazine offers a collection of articles on early childhood development, beginning with the introduction "Learning from Birth," which describes the importance of the first 3 years of life and what case studies and policy-related articles are contained in the issue.
