Abstract:
The early years of life present a unique opportunity to lay the foundation for healthy development. It is a time of great growth and of vulnerability. Research on early childhood has underscored the impact of the first five years of a child's life on his/her social-emotional development. Negative early experiences can impair children's mental health and effect their cognitive, behavioral, social-emotional development.
