According to UNESCO ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) Unit, early childhood is defined as the period from birth to 8 years old. A time of remarkable brain development, the foundation for subsequent learning lay in these years. A systematic review of international evidence suggests that the benefits of early childhood education come from the experience itself, of participation, and tany excess of more than 2.5 hours a day does not greatly add to the child development outcome especially if this means the young child is missing out on other experiences and family contact.
