Strong foundations. Early childhood care and education.
EFA Global Monitoring Report 2007.
Quelle: http://www.unesco.org/en/efareport/reports/2007-early-childhood/Kurzinfo:Early childhood is a time of remarkable transformation and extreme vulnerability. Programmes that support young children during the years before they go to primary school prove strong foundations for subsequent learning and development. Such programmes also compensate for disadvantage and exclusion, offering a way out of poverty.The 2007 Report focuses on the first Education for All goal, which calls upon countries to expand and improve early childhood care and education – in the form of a holistic package encompassing care, health and nutrition in addition to education.Disadvantaged children stand to benefit the most, yet too few developing countries, and too few donor agencies, have made early childhood a priority.
