Birth to Three
The Foundation Years
Although counterintuitive, the most important educational years are from birth to three. Development takes place in ages and stages and in five areas—cognitive, motor, social/emotional, language and self-esteem. However, how all that happens depends on parenting. Every child is entitled to have the finest experiences, and every parent should know how to provide them.
Most important is that these interactions help parents connect with their children in a positive way. During these three years of foundation, proper and respectful behavior can become the norm. According to the latest research such bonding can prevent child abuse and even act as a deterrent to crime and violence in later years.
