Evidence shows that early childhood is a vital time to detect and treat any factors that can interfere with a child’s health and development. There is substantial proof that by preventing health and developmental problems, or intervening early when they occur, we can improve the health that child experiences across the rest of their lifespan. This also aids in improving a child's chances of engaging with education and getting the best learning outcomes possible.
