Early childhood focuses on the maturation of children for nearly a decade, from infancy to around eight years old. Important changes take place for children during these pivotal years, including language development, physical growth and development, and understanding appropriate social and behavioral interactions.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
