Early Childhood

The term "early childhood" typically refers to children from birth through age eight.

If you've worked with children at any time during those years of life, you know that they are marked by continual growth and change. During the early childhood years, children make significant developmental gains cognitively, socially, emotionally and physically. When you think about exactly how much change occurs during those first eight years, it is quite remarkable. From crawling to walking, talking to reading and writing, and then to thinking in complex, logical ways and working with numbers...all of those skills are foundational for success in later years of life. That's why it is critical that children get the opportunity to develop in appropriate and healthy ways. What happens in the early childhood years will affect their learning and social experiences for the rest of their lives.
