Sharpening a vision for Early Years Education – The Avanza Academy Perspective

Early Years Education in Malta

“Early childhood education and care is the essential foundation or successful lifelong learning, social integration, personal development and later employability. It is also particularly beneficial for the disadvantaged, including those from migrant and low-income backgrounds. It can help lift children out of poverty and family dysfunction” (European Commission, 2011). According to the European Commission/EACEA/Eurydice (2019), one-third of children under the age of 3 years attend an Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) setting. That is, 5 million young children across 38 European countries are currently spending most of their day navigating and making sense of their first formal out-of-home experience.

As Early Years Practitioners we have a duty and a responsibility to ensure that our children are provided with a quality provision. A provision where a young child is exposed to an enriched, holistic and stimulating learning environment that is conducive in laying the foundations to their future learning trajectory (UNICEF, 2015). The same can be said for anyone wishing to work with the ECEC sector – having the best start, is indeed the best way of starting strong.

Providing the quality of service within Early Childhood Education and Care is by no means a simple or straight forward task, let alone an easy job to manage effectively. Many Early Childhood Education and Care provisions are regularly faced with a myriad of issues affecting the quality of service, often leading to socially complicated and stressful situations for those who are involved. This is where excellent professional training and development acts as a vehicle to ensure those working within Early Childhood Education and Care, are securely driven to professionally resolving and managing issues related to quality educational care. Here at Avanza Academy Malta, we have taken the first step to support the 0-3 years ECEC sector, by offering the first of many accredited professional courses for those wishing and/or working within the field.
