From the Paper:

"Entering young children into education at a very early age can help them to make the critical developmental steps toward social and intellectual maturation. Often, therefore, the benefits of early education can be seen in such children as they progress through adolescence and adulthood. It is therefore imperative that individual support of such objectives as social and intellectual maturation be sought as a means to capturing the attention and imagination of young minds at a time when they are most absorbent. A wide variety of perspectives are available regarding the value of early education, identifying it as a crucial tool in helping to identify issues related to development, learning and leadership in a wide array of social and academic contexts. Early education provides learners the tools for a successful academic career, justifying the emphasis through research, government and private institutions on increased early childhood education."
