A Summary of the Problem of Timing in Preschool Education. ERIC-IRCD Bulletin (Supplement). Volume III, Number 2A.
Robinson, Halbert B.
Although it is widely accepted that early childhood is the optimal, time to begin educational intervention, there does not seem to be an agreement on the specific kinds of interventions. For the disadvantaged child, however, it seems that intervention in infancy and very early childhood is especially indicated. This summary and literature review notes the problems concerned with the long-range goals of early childhood education, the stability of early learning, and the problems of timing the educational interventions.
