What is Early Childhood Education
Early childhood education is a branch of education which relates to the teaching of young children from 1 year to 8 years. It is described as an important period in a child’s development. Early childhood education consists of number of activities and experiences designed to aid in the cognitive and social development of preschoolers before they enter elementary school. ECDE focuses on guiding children to learn through play. Since early childhood occurs before the age of 8 years in which a child goes through the most rapid phase of growth and development, early childhood education is very important for their fast brain development which is critical at that age. The foundation for their social skills, self-esteem, perception of the world and moral outlook are established during these years.
