Every time a parent speaks to a young child, it sparks something in the child; it’s stimulation to the child. It forms brain connections.

Dr Pia Rebello Britto, neuroscientist, UNICEF senior advisor on ECD

UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up.

Some people from UNICEF are coming this month to Barcelona Montessori School to explain to us how we can take part and help their mission and goal. Montessori and UNICEF share a lot of believes about education and the importance of early years development.

More soon.

The time to invest in the future strength of our nations, our economies and our communities is in the earliest years of life. The clock is always ticking and the time to act is now.

Jack P. Shonkoff, M.D., Director of the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University
