WHY THERE IS EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION


WHY THERE IS EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Unlike the time of the past especially in African countries,where parents and households live solely on agricultural produce,parents now have to work so hard in white collar jobs to cater for their families. Today, the basic needs such as housing, education and food are very expensive,and many times,jobs are not forth coming. The times when families rely only on the heads of their families,fathers are gone. Today,women now contribute in providing for the needs of the family. This means that if a woman has a baby and secures employment,she either leaves the baby at home with a care taker,and admits him in school to be taken care of. This is why there is early childhood education.

There are women who are just lazy that they can not take care of their babies. Thus,they admit these babies to school for teachers to do the job for them. This again is a reason why there is early childhood education.

There are again some baby women who have not understood that motherhood is all about responsibility that is keeping the home clean,cooking for her family,and even doing some laundering work. These types of women claim that they can not handle all of these chores along with the responsibility of caring for the babies. Therefore,admitting their babies in school becomes a solution to their problem giving reasons why there is early childhood education.
