Early childhood is considered to be the most important developmental phase throughout the lifespan. Development within these early years is critical for the child’s developmental trajectory and lifecourse. These sentiments are mirrored by major health and research bodies, who acknowledge that early interventions can provide enormous benefits to the individual and can save enormous costs throughout a person’s lifetime.
