Importance of Early Childhood Learning and Development

A child’s early years are the foundation for their future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. Babies are born ready to learn, with around 90 percent of brain development occurring in the first five years of life.

Vision and hearing pathways develop first, followed by early language skills and higher cognitive functions. A child’s vocabulary often quadruples between ages two and four. These connections become more complex over time as children grow, and influence brain development to create positive learning behaviours from an early age.

Research shows that children who participate in quality preschool programs are more likely to arrive at school equipped with social, cognitive, and emotional skills. Higher levels of educational success, employment and social skills have all been linked to moderate levels of participation in quality early childhood education. There are a large variety of early learning centres available to Logan parents.

While at Springwood Community Kindergarten, it is more focused on play inspires learning. For 45 years, their experienced Early Childhood teachers have delivered engaging programs that balance play, learning and school readiness in a supportive environment.

Whereas Amana Family Day Care is an approved form of child care that is provided in the Educator’s own home. The home-based setting provides a familiar and safe learning environment.  Family daycare can offer care during standard hours, evenings, before/after school, during school holidays and in some cases overnight and weekends.
