Abstract:
The early years of a child's life are extremely important to their growth and development. The type of daily experiences they encounter, along with adult-child relationships aid in sculpting the child's delicate personality. In other words, "daily drip of everyday experiences help children thrive" (Barr, in Jamieson et al, 1995). Early Childhood Care & Development (ECCD), in this regard, is an emerging field, which looks at the framing of a child and providing appropriate environments for their optimum growth and development. In this concept, a child is developed physically, mentally, emotionally, socially as well as spiritually; quality childcare centers utilize ECCD as a guiding principal. Many children are placed into childcare centers before entering a formal school system. Research all around the world indicates that quality care in the early years has an impact on the child's intelligence, personality, social behavior and learning. On the contrary, research also shows the hazards of not providing quality care, that is, infants and young children exposed to poor-quality daycare, regardless of whether they come from middle or low income homes, score lower on measures of cognitive and social skills. Hence, it becomes extremely important to provide ECCD in childcare centers and childcare services play a major role in the development of a child.
