השקעה בגיל הרך-ממצאי מחקר

Disadvantaged children who attend high-quality early childhood programs that include health and nutrition have significantly improved health as adults, make healthier lifestyle choices and experience fewer illnesses as adults, according to new research from Nobel laureate economist James Heckman and colleagues at the University of Chicago, University College London and the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina.
These findings, published today in Science, build upon existing evidence that high-quality early childhood programs produce better economic and social outcomes for disadvantaged children.
Based on more than three decades of studying children in and out of the Abecedarian program in North Carolina, this new research shows that children who participated in the early childhood development program, which combined early education with early health screenings and nutrition, have a significantly lower prevalence of risk factors for cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, such as stroke and diabetes, in their mid-30s than the control group, who did not participate in early learning programs.
“Abecedarian shows that investing in early learning programs that offer health components can boost education, health and economic outcomes. It also offers a different way to fight costly adult chronic diseases: investing early in the development of children to build the knowledge and self-regulation necessary to prevent chronic disease and help them lead healthy, productive lives.”
– Professor Heckman
