Pre-school and kindergarten education opportunities are rare throughout the developing world, especially to children living in poverty. Evidence collected from across the globe shows that early childhood development is key to overcoming inter-generational poverty as it kick starts the education cycle during the most rapid, critical and influential phase of human growth. Quality group learning programs prepare young minds for formal education through exposure to mentally stimulating environments which enhance cognitive processes and develop essential relational skills.
Caregiver participation is often an additional component of early childhood development to highlight the importance of incorporating education in home life and making healthy choices. Information workshops cover areas such as nutrition, hygiene, dental health, immunisation campaigns, child protection and family planning.
