Putting children first – ECEC: a powerful tool for child wellbeing
September 8, 2020 - September 8, 2020
Increasingly politicians and policy makers are aware of the importance of ECEC in helping a child onto their best course for life. They are also aware of the importance of ECEC to the economic wellbeing of the child, the family, and the economy overall.
What fewer understand is the potential for ECEC to be a powerful tool for protecting children and families living with adversity, especially if ECEC is universal and free. In these circumstances, appropriately resourced ECEC centres can be hubs delivering not only high-quality education, but also a place where families can be linked to services they may not otherwise have been able to reach.
