Bright Horizons Education Expert at World Forum
May 21, 2019 – Bright Horizons Vice President for Education and Development Rachel Robertson joined early childhood professionals and advocates from around the world in Macao, China to speak at the World Forum on Early Care and Education. The forum allowed for dialogue on the futures of young children and their familiar around the world.
"From the very beginning, relationships are the most important element in a human’s life," Robertson said. "Early attachment and connections are vital for both emotional well-being and physical health, and to that end, relationships are the roots of life - essential elements that when firmly secure can anchor us in times of challenge and are continually fortified by ongoing care and connection."
At the Forum, Robertson spoke of how essential relationships are for the professionals whose life work has been about caring for the youngest children. Additionally, Robertson discussed how those working in early care and education are establishing roots and ensuring a strong and sustainable foundation for which all future learning and development can build upon.
