Much of the world's education crisis stems from the lack of adequate early childhood education and care in children's early years. Early childhood education is developing globally and dynamically. In response to demand, universities and communities are increasing investment, knowledge and innovation to support the expansion of early learning programs. The World Bank is funding 50 early childhood education projects totaling more than $1 billion.
Currently, the development of high-quality early education is hampered by several factors: a lack of qualified professional teachers, age-appropriate curricula, and well-established quality assurance mechanisms. In response to these realities, providing quality early childhood education programs, offering developmentally appropriate curricula, and improving the professional development of teachers have become important strategies for the development of early childhood education around the world.
