June 20, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The OECD series Education Indicators in Focus #42 is titled What are the benefits from early childhood education?

Their conclusion on page 4 states :

“Evidence shows that early childhood education leads to the development of cognitive, social and emotional skills at a young age as well as to better school performance later on. It also creates conditions for lifelong learning and better future professional achievement. Furthermore, efforts to ensure quality early childhood education programmes may help to decrease the level of inequality between students and reduce the impact of socioeconomic differences in education.”

OECD.  (2016), « What are the benefits from early childhood education? », Education Indicators in Focus, No. 42, OECD Publishing, Paris.  DOI : http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/5jlwqvr76dbq-en

The related blog is titled “why should we improve learning opportunities for young children?  From the blog:

“The arguments and evidence in favour of early childhood education are now so powerful that they have flipped the traditional question of who should educate young children on its head: should governments stimulate families more to send their children to early childhood education? Families increasingly understand that high-quality early education programmes offer their children more than a safe place to spend a day; they can offer the kind of play and instruction that are the building blocks of healthy cognitive and social development. ”
