If you want to learn about early childhood education and why it is so important, it could be a good idea to watch this video. In it, Stephen Zwolak, who has more than 45 years of experience in teaching, talks about how important education is at this early developmental stage. He is the one who developed the LUME Approach, which can potentially play a major role in eliminating the socioeconomic and racial disparities that exist right now.
This approach is based on a great deal of observational, neuroscientific, and theoretical research. Essentially, it shows how important the healthy emotional development of children is in order for these children to later achieve academic success and positive outcomes throughout their lives, even into adulthood.
Young children have very impressionable minds, and it is very important for the adults in their lives, including teachers, to provide them with healthy and nurturing environments. In many cases, older kids who do not do as well in school or have behavioral problems are not having these issues because of any intrinsic defects but because the system did not provide them with the environments that they would have needed for optimal growth when they were younger and more impressionable.
