Why is work with early years so important?
More and more research is showing that the first few years of our lives are hugely important for our development. Without the correct care and mental stimulation, children will be negatively affected in later life. Things children see, hear, taste, touch and smell are all part of the learning process. Their brains undergo a lot of change as they grow, especially age 0-3.
In their first few years children learn:
- Social skills
- Behavioural skills
- Speech and language
- How to pick up small objects with their hands
- To sit up, crawl and walk
- To solve problems
