Cambridge, the world’s largest provider of international education programs, is introducing its first early years education program in Nigeria.

The “Cambridge Early Years” program, designed to benefit children as young as 3 by focusing on play-based learning.

Rod Smith, Group Managing Director for International Education at Cambridge, emphasized the crucial role of a child’s early years in their development. He stated, “A child’s early years are crucial for their development. Our new Cambridge Early Years program draws on Cambridge’s expertise to help schools in Nigeria give children as many exciting and stimulating learning experiences as possible, making the most of this key phase of brain development and getting children off to a good start in life.”

The importance of early childhood education is emphasized by multiple studies. Research from the OECD’s International Early Learning and Child Well-being Study reveals that high-quality early childhood education and care can significantly boost children’s verbal comprehension skills.

Juan Visser, Regional Director, Sub-Saharan Africa for International Education at Cambridge, expressed his enthusiasm for the program, saying, “Our Cambridge Early Years program brings together the best approaches from around the world with extensive teacher support. We want to help schools in Nigeria support children’s long-term development and help them be ready for the world.

The Cambridge Early Years program is built on 12 key principles, including the significance of play-based learning and the gradual transition to more formal teaching. This approach not only imparts knowledge but also equips children with essential life skills for an ever-changing world.

This new program offers a flexible structure tailored to the numerous needs of different schools in Nigeria, providing customized teaching packages. Specially crafted classroom resources and assessments will assist teachers in tracking each child’s progress and promoting development.

Cambridge’s research identifies the fragmented nature of early years provision in many schools worldwide. By integrating curriculum components and teaching methods, Cambridge aims to provide comprehensive and high-quality early years education.
