Early Childhood Education
According to many education experts, early education gets it just right.
Kids learn best and love to learn through... play. If only the idea (see: alternative education) were carried through to grade school or higher!
Even for young infants, early learning skills arise from a baby's natural curiosity about the world and how to manipulate it to fulfill simple needs.
As they grow, providing kids with tender loving care, good nutrition, and a fun learning environment are all-important in their intellectual and emotional development.
In today's busy world -- especially with two working parent households -- it's become even more important that kids are given over to caretakers who recognize the need and provide this special care and nurturing in the early years.
