BBC Early Life
BBC World News
What goes on inside the brains of babies? How much are we shaped by the first few years of our lives? Can those early experiences and interactions with parents, carers and surroundings leave an indelible mark on our personalities? Scientists now have new insights into how children think. Some claim we’re not acting on our discoveries and are wasting the potential of a quarter of a billion lives.
In a new three part series which travels to Peru, Africa and Thailand, Early Life explores the latest science and asks whether we’re ignoring a unique chance to make a better world.
My First Day at School
My First Day at School, the final Early Life programme, is broadcast on BBC World News from August 15th. Three kids face their first day at school – but are their lives already set on different courses? Scientists suggest that how the brain develops in the first years of life may affect kids’ ability to prosper at school.
Our film follows three children as they prepare to enter primary school in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Sita is looking forward to it, Best is wary, and Tha Na Korn doesn’t even have a school to go to yet. Their dilemmas reflect those of Thailand as a whole: how should a country with its own traditions of childhood prepare its kids for the new globalized society? Research shows Japanese, American and Chinese models can conflict – so how can a country that’s caught in the middle decide? Are universal ‘Child Rights’ the answer or are they just a well-meaning myth? It’s only in extreme cases that brain chemistry is disrupted irreparably by a poor start in life - but millions of children around the world may still not have the chance to recover.
So what’s the best way of making sure all children have a decent chance on their first day at school? And why do the Millennium Development Goals – the internationally accepted development targets for global poverty reduction – include nothing on the vital role of children’s early childhood years?
