Act For Early Years

Every child deserves quality early years childcare and education. But millions go without.

Join the campaign #ActForEarlyYears


Without the right early years support, children fall behind even before they have started school.

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
