Currenttrends in early childhood education include integrated curriculum,science education, and early literature. Students in early childhoodeducation are imparted with science related concepts with anobjective of nurturing exploration and curiosity (“Foundationsof Early Education”).Early literacy is used as an intervention of preparing students forfuture enhancement of their writing and reading skills (“ECE”).The historical roots of early childhood education are oftenassociated with John Dewey, the father of pragmatism, FreidrichFroebel, a founder of the first kindergarten, and Maria Monetessori,who introduced a sensory approach to learning.

Some of the social interventionsin earlychildhood education includeWaldorfapproach,Montessori,Nordicapproach,and Reggio Emilia approach (“ECRP”).The effectiveness of each approach is dependent on the perception ofa community and the value it accords to childhood education.

Instructiontechniques and strategies used in early childhood education includeLogo labeling, sound recognition and matching, photo flashcards ofsocial scenarios, and shared skills.
