What is Early Learning?

Early Learning is defined as “the emerging and expanding of young children’s physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and creative capabilities from birth to school entry.

It is a natural, holistic and exploratory process that young children engage in from birth and that lays the foundation for later learning, whether formal or informal. Early learning is part of and related to early childhood development”
