By the time most kids start preschool, aged around 3, the most important building blocks for learning have already been put in place. That's why this edition of Early Childhood Matters focuses on learning from birth to 3 years old. Articles examine how children learn in their first three years and survey what we know about current policies and interventions to promote learning in this age group. There are country contributions focusing on Brazil, Colombia and India among others, and articles addressing the role of fatherhood, potential uses of mobile technology in early learning, a Vygotskian perspective on the issue, and the WHO intervention "Care for Child Development".
