Early Learning Centres are those that have been set up to educate infants and young children. The concept is nothing new and has been used in various countries and cultures for thousands of years, and there are still many Early Learning Centres around the world today.

Most Early Learning Centres offer structured and unstructured learning, although some of the Unstructured Learning Centres are designed solely for children under the age of 3.

Parents have to consider when choosing an Early Learning Centre is the amount of time the children spend there each day. Many parents feel that the hours allotted for their young ones to interact with one another are not enough. It is common practice in many centers to allow children to interact for as little as ten minutes each day, although this practice may differ from center to center.
