Why is early learning so important?
Reason 1 The first years of a child’s life are the most crucial for their future development. The early years are the foundation for lifelong learning, especially the development of cognitive and social abilities. From an early age we want to help shape the extraordinary person they will become. Reason 2 Your child is unique, and so is their brain. The first 5 years of life are crucial to development and because the brain is a muscle, good development requires constant mental exercise.The role of our early years team is to get the two halves of your child’s brain (shown below) to reach their full potential by getting them to work in partnership. We do this by providing your child with a wide variety of games, tasks and learning to ensure that every part of their brain grows together.

Reason 3 The early years are a period of great opportunity. A combination of good nutrition, constant love and the ability to learn in the early years leads children to live healthier lives, do better at school and as a result have higher living wages. This can result in a more successful adulthood and even give the next generation a better start to life. The financial and social welfare of today’s society is contributed by educated and healthy people.
