Education is seen as the building block of development anywhere in the world. A good education leads to informed choices, more knowledge and better jobs.
Education policy is strongly intertwined with poverty. There is an increased chance of sound economic growth when there are good and specific investments in education. Certain specific groups could especially benefit from this (e.g. women, the poor, people in the countryside and the indigenous population).

All experts agree that an important part of a child’s development takes place before they are six years old, on the cognitive level as well as on the motor, communicative and social-emotional level. During this crucial time for brain development, the foundation for future learning ability is laid. In other words, good nursery education is of the utmost importance for a successful school career and opens doors to new opportunities in life.
