Here at Walton Academy we know that early childhood education is of vast importance. Early childhood education helps children to be more confident and curious when they go to school. Every interaction is a learning experience that helps your child to grow and adapt to society as they move forward in the journey of life.

Relationship Building

Early Childhood Education has boundless benefits, one being relationship building. Children learn to share, make friends and take turns which is undoubtedly positive. Through these experiences they learn to communicate their own ideas and quite importantly listen to others. In addition to this, they also learn to be independent and also learn and take responsibility for others needs as well as their own.

Being Better in School

Children that take part in Early Childhood Education settle more easily at school and get the benefits of education at a faster pace.

“There is increasing recognition that the first few years of a child’s life are a particularly sensitive period in the process of development, laying a foundation in childhood and beyond for cognitive functioning; behavioral, social, and self-regulatory capacities; and physical health. Yet many children face various stressors during these years that can impair their healthy development. Early childhood intervention programs are designed to mitigate the factors that place children at risk of poor outcomes. Such programs provide supports for the parents, the children, or the family as a whole. These supports may be in the form of learning activities or other structured experiences that affect a child directly or that have indirect effects through training parents or otherwise enhancing the caregiving environment.” – The Rand Corporation
