INVESTING IN EARLY CHILDHOOD IS A PRIORITY

The importance of the first 1000 days

The first six years of a child's life are the most important for his future. There is even talk lately of the importance of the first 1000 days. Science has shown that the child's experiences and emotional relationships shape his approach to the outside world. They lay the foundations for their development, their academic and professional success, and their personal growth.

 "Make cuckoo noises to your child, it activates thousands of neurons in a few seconds [...] you influence the mechanisms that will help him for the rest of his life to learn and react " explains this video of the site Born and Grown.

Inequalities emerge in early childhood

  • 1 child in 3 under the age of 5 is malnourished
  • More than 5 million children die before the age of 5
  • 1 child raised in a safe environment will be 2 to 5 times less likely to be hospitalized in his/her lifetime

In Cambodia, Vietnam, Nepal and Burkina Faso where the association works, extreme poverty is a major risk for young children. The most disadvantaged families are unaware of the benefits of care, stimulation and learning for the development of young children.

However, societies are changing and many have understood the challenge of education for the success of their children. There is a growing demand for professional childcare for toddlers. But childcare services for children under 6 years of age are still scarce and of insufficient quality.

Planète Enfants & Développement therefore wishes to develop a ambitious strategy for the development of early childhoodespecially for the most disadvantaged.
