Early Childhood Development

"Early child development sets the foundation for learning, behaviour and health. Getting kids on the right path in the early years is one of the best investments we can make as a society and helps us tap the tremendous human potential of our children." Dr. Fraser Mustard, The Founders' Network

The most important years of life for children’s future success as resilient, healthy adults are age zero to six.  During this time, relationships with family and caregivers help young brains develop through interaction, positive discipline, play and support.

Early childhood development  is an important determinant of health, which also builds the foundation for healthy  and thriving communities.
