Well Said: Early childhood education

The first five years of a child’s life is a crucial period where they learn the skills they’ll need to navigate life.

And for most, that education no longer happens primarily at home — it comes from child-care and preschool teachers.

In this week’s episode, we’re talking about the importance of high-quality early childhood education and research done at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute with Margaret Burchinal, a research scientist at the institute and a research professor in developmental psychology.

Join us every Wednesday for the University’s podcast as we talk with Carolina’s newsmakers and experts. Each episode, students, faculty, staff and alumni will discuss what’s going on in classrooms, labs and around campus, and how it pertains to the local, national and international headlines.
