What a difference a portfolio makes: early learning is not babysitting

Susan Krieg notes in The Conversation that early childhood has moved back into the education portfolio. ‘Most often engagement with the “three Rs” is viewed as more important than the learning that has occurred before it. This perception persists despite the research evidence from neuroscience, economics and social science that the experiences and learning in the first 2000 days of life, before a child enters primary school, are critical in establishing trajectories in health, learning and behaviour.’
