In the first 5 years of life, a child’s brain grows at an astounding rate determining how they think, learn and behave. These first 5 years are critical to a child’s ability to succeed in life.
Giving children access to quality preschool learning opportunities between the ages of 3 and 5 years is vital to their development.
In Sri Lanka, too many children miss out on the benefits of quality pre-school. In fact only 48.7% of 3-5 year old’s attend pre-school*
We can change this NOW.
"I call on the Government of Sri Lanka to ensure that all children under five benefit from at least one year of quality pre-school, giving them the best possible chance to succeed in school and life."
