The early years is when inequality sets in. Millions of the world's children go without the quality care and early learning they require.

90% of a child’s brain development takes place between birth and the age of five

Children who go to pre-school are nearly 50% more likely to finish high school no matter their background

Each dollar invested in early childhood education can yield a return as high as US $17 – breaking cycles of poverty and inequality
