According to the World Bank, more than 150 million children under the age of five in developing countries do not have access to early childhood education. Investing in the early years of a child’s life is one of the smartest things a country can do to eliminate poverty, increase shared prosperity, and stimulate economies to diversify and grow.

Early childhood experiences have a profound impact on brain development—affecting learning, health, behavior and ultimately, income. Children who receive early learning in their formative, pre-primary years gain social and emotional competence, and improved health generally. They also have higher school completion rates and higher incomes, and females are more likely to participate in the labour force. Globally, children who receive this type of education are more likely to send their own children to school, empowering them to create a generation of change and interrupting cycles of poverty.

Going to school teaches students socialization, communication and community building skills which they carry into their families and their futures. Girls who go to school are less likely to marry early or against their will. Education empowers women to make life choices and strengthens girls’ beliefs in their ability to achieve goals.Investing in the early years is one of the smartest things a country can do to eliminate extreme poverty, boost shared prosperity, and create the human capital needed for economies to diversify and grow. Early childhood experiences have a profound impact on brain development – affecting learning, health, behavior, and, ultimately, productivity and income.

Yet today, millions of young children are not reaching their full potential because inadequate nutrition; a lack of early stimulation, learning, and nurturing care; and exposure to stress adversely affecting their development.

The challenge is substantial:

In low- and middle-income countries across the world, 250 million children under the age of five are at risk of not reaching their developmental potential because of poverty and stunting (or low height for age).

Worldwide, only half of all three to six-year-olds have access to pre-primary education. In low-income countries, just one-in-five children has access to preschool.

One in 200 children in the world are displaced, exposing them to the kind of stress that can undermine their development.

Around the world, over 40 percent of children below primary-school-entry age – or nearly 350 million children – need childcare, but do not have access to it.

Smart investments in the physical, cognitive, linguistic, and socio-emotional development of young children – from before birth until they transition to primary school – are critical to put them on the path to greater prosperity, and to help countries be more productive and compete more successfully in a rapidly changing global economy.

A large body of evidence confirms that if we invest in high-quality programs that support children’s health, nutrition, and early learning, we can improve learning outcomes, and ultimately increase adult wages and productivity.
