THE POWER OF PAUD*

 

*Pendidikan Anak Usia Dini is an early childhood education centre in Indonesia 

Investments in the early childhood stage, a crucial period for cognitive and psychosocial development, can have long-term impacts on a child.  

 

(Gertler et al. 2014)

Improving teacher quality was identified as an area of opportunity to strengthen Indonesia's education system. 

(Asia Philanthropy Circle, 2017)

Studies show that under-stimulating environments can lead to inequalities in the early ages. A child who falls behind in these years may never fully bridge the gaps and catch up.

 

(Heckman, 2006)
