The early childhood phase of human development usually ranges from birth to eight years. Because these are very important developmental years, the education administered to children is designed to contribute to their overall development. During this phase of childhood development, most children learn through fun activities or play. According to current research, the first eight years of life is the period of human development where major brain development occurs. As a result, nutrition, human interaction, and education during these years greatly impact a child’s brain development.
