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).

In other words, good nursery education is of the utmost importance for a successful school career and opens doors to new opportunities in life.
