ENTELKI PROGRAM FOR PRE-SCHOOLERS

Skill and competency development is a continuous life long process every person goes through. This process involves learning and mastering various skills right from the early childhood, and continuing through the person’s entire life.

Early childhood, according to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, is the most important stage of development that forms the basis of intelligence, personality, social behaviour, and capacity to learn and nurture oneself as an adult. The brain grows faster in the first five years than at any other time in an individual’s life. Cognitive and character skills developed and the activities undertaken during the early years of life are not only formative and necessary for success in school, health, career and life of an individual, but also play a vital role in building human capital, breaking the cycle of poverty, promoting economic productivity, and eliminating social disparities and inequities at the National level.

Although a child achieves a lot of his early childhood intellectual development through the genes, and self-exploration and play, according to the WHO, a lack of attachment to a consistent caregiver during appropriate time periods of the individual’s life can negatively affect his brain development.

ECONOMICS OF EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT

Investing in the earliest years leads to some of the highest rates of return to families, societies and countries.

Professor Heckman’s analysis of the Perry Preschool program shows a 7% to 10% per year return on investment based on increased school and career achievement as well as reduced costs in remedial education, health and criminal justice system expenditures [www.hekmanequation.org]

A simulation on increasing pre-school enrolment in 73 countries found benefits in terms of higher future wages of $6.4-$17.6 per dollar invested. The simulation indicated potential long-term benefits which range from $11 to $34 billion. [www.unicef.org]
