They, remember from this organization, are also suffering the impact of the pandemic: 50% of private centers have closed or are going to do so. “The brain transforms and changes throughout the life of any human being, but it is between 0 and 3 years when it is built”, explain the experts of the AMEI-WAECE. “Education is one of the areas that has been most affected by the pandemic caused by the coronavirus and the short, medium and long term effects will be very harmful for children, especially those of younger age whose brain is in full development “, they add. “The structure of these centers, unlike the home, is designed according to the needs of children, offering greater possibilities for the manipulation and exploration of objects and space”, they emphasize. «Likewise, the development of the personality can only evolve in contact with other children» «These first experiences are key, and will form the pattern that will largely predict what may come later. Scientific research supports the existence of critical periods during the first and second years of life in relation to the acquisition of two learnings, one is the sense of sight, and the other that of hearing, without exposure to the necessary stimuli. of these senses will have the necessary maturation for the baby to develop vision and hearing. In addition, studies by the Carnegie Corporation show that the IQ will be 15-20 points higher than those who have not attended, “they say. Just a couple of weeks ago, they conclude, data was released from the 2019 TIMSS Report comparing student results in math and science. This research proved that schooling during the 0-3 year stage has a positive impact on students’ long-term math and science outcomes.
