Social development in Early Childhood Facts

Of Education/ECE Bureau

Brain and biological development during the first years of life depends on the quality of stimulation in the infant’s environment—at the level of family, community, and society. Early child development (ECD), in turn is a life long determinant of health, well-being, and learning skills. Taken together, these facts make early child development a social determinant of health.

Fact 2

Addressing ECD means creating the conditions for children prenatal to 8 years to thrive equally in their physical, social/emotional, and language/cognitive development.

Fact 3

Safe, cohesive, child-centred neighbourhoods, communities, and villages matter for early child development.

Fact 4

In order to improve the state of early child development, global communities need to continuously improve the conditions for families to nurture their children by addressing economic security, flexible work, information and support, health and quality childcare needs.

Fact 5

Barriers of access to programs and services that have been demonstrated effective in supporting physical, social/emotional, language/cognitive development for ECD need to be removed.

Fact 6

Children require stimulating, supportive and nurturing care when their parents are not available. High quality childcare and early childhood education can improve children’s chances for success in later life.

Fact 7

Early child development is a cornerstone of human development and should be central to how we judge the successfulness of societies. Measuring the state of early child development with a comparable approach throughout the world will provide a way for societies to judge their success.

Fact 8

Success in the area of early child development requires a partnership, not only among international, national, and local agencies but, also, with the world’s families.

Fact 9

Many in the international development community agree that child survival and child development are not in conflict but program financing in the international development community has not yet reflected this understanding.

"[Certain experiences], especially when suffered at an early age, are thought to predispose individuals to later adult impairments, including alcoholism, depression, and an array of psychological as well as physical disorders.
Psychotherapy, oriented toward uncovering the early
antecedent traumas of adult disorders, is predicated on the hypothesis that early life experiences determine the development of an individual throughout adulthood. Most often the effect is found to be negative."
