How early childhood education makes kids smart | DW Documentary

30 Mar 2021

The first five years of a child’s life are crucial. If early childhood education is neglected, problems can arise that may never be overcome, leading to consequences for the individual and society as a whole.

In the United States, there’s little public investment in early childhood education. Yet research shows that the support and education children receive in their first five years has a decisive influence on the course of their lives. A lack of early childhood education affects not only the child and the **** they become, but also the society in which they live. This documentary looks at the topic from several perspectives, including sociology, history, developmental psychology and neuroscience. But at its core are the personal stories of children and their love of learning, as well as families trying against all odds to give their kids a good start in life. It also spotlights preschool teachers - educators who are hardly recognized by society and whose salaries are barely above the poverty line, but whose work is essential. It’s a film that explores a dramatic problem using plenty of warmth and humor.
