Why we do it?
Evidence is growing on the educational, social and economic benefits of quality early childhood education for children and the society. In particular, quality pre-primary education has shown to boost school readiness, learning achievement and education system efficiency.
The inclusion of pre-primary and early childhood development in the United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development 2015–2030 is evidence of this increased global attention.
