ECEC

BY JILLEASE RILEY

Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) has turned into the standard in numerous European and North American nations, where most offspring of 3 years old and upwards go to controlled early training administration. 

Early instruction for youngsters between the ages of 3 and 6 years old  is a mutual duty between the family and the state and is frequently free and completely sponsored.

The circumstance is increasingly blended where ECEC for youngsters under 3 years old is concerned: numerous administrations liberally finance and bolster guardians to get to child care, yet others see childcare as fundamental parental duty. 

Parental influence

I personally believe that being involved in a child’s early stages of life can be very beneficial or detrimental to their upbringing. 

It’s more common for those whose parents aren’t involved to act out or have social and behavioral issues versus those whose parents are involved and are happy and sociable. 

In my opinion, education should be introduced to a child early on. It seems helpful and it’ll make it easier when it comes time for school. 

Outside impacts 

Whether your child is watching educational television shows or playing educational games, they’re all beneficial.

During these early stages, children tend to pick up or mimic things that they may see or hear. It’s vital that what children see, hear, or do will produce a healthy outcome.

A child’s mind is like a sponge. It soaks up everything they see and anything that they hear or see during these stages can and will determine how they develop overtime.
