The core features of residential communities that have been identified as being important
for ECD include the socioeconomic, physical, and service environments
oHigh levels of SES associated with better school readiness and school
achievements in young children
oChildren of low SES who live in economically mixed neighbourhoods do better
than children living poor neighbourhoods
Therefore, governments should enforce policies for economically-mixed
neighbourhoods.
The relational community is a primary influence on how children and families identify
themselves and others, and how outsiders identify children; therefore, it is a primary
source of social inclusion and exclusion, sense of self and self-worth, self-esteem, and
gender socialization.
osocial capital or collective efficacy, have been shown to be nurturant for children
and their families, both in the context of urban neighbourhoods in resource-rich
nations and in the village context in resource-poor nations
Early Childhood Development (ECD) programmes foster and promote the quality of
human capital: that is, individuals’ competencies and skills for participating in society
and the work force
oAccordingly, ecd programmes—which incorporate and link health-promoting
measures (e.g., good nutrition, immunization) with nurturance, participation, care,
stimulation, and protection—offer the prospect of sustained improvements in
physical, social, emotional, language, and cognitive development, while
simultaneously reducing the immediate and future burden of disease, especially
for those who are most vulnerable and disadvantaged
oIn every country, it is children from the poorest communities who are least likely
to have access to ecd programmes —“those most exposed to malnutrition and
preventable diseases—yet who would also benefit the most\
oInvesting in these programs have shown in studies have shown to save costs of
stuff such as remedial education and criminal justice.
oIt is widely understood that the transformation of theTiger Economies of
Southeast Asia from resource-poor, low life expectancy to resource-rich, high life
expectancy societies was accomplished primarily through investment in children,
from conception to school leaving.
