Early Life and Education
For the first few years of life, children are entirely dependent on their parents or other caregivers for survival. This is when they learn basic life skills such as walking, feeding themselves, speaking, etc.
However, for healthy development of children, they also require active stimulation and socialization with people outside their families. Early childhood education (ECE) is a formal and informal educational program that gives children these invaluable experiences.
UNESCO believes that high quality early childhood education (ECE) is critical to ensure optimal brain development for every child from birth to eight years of age, and an investment that benefits both their individual wellbeing and the community at large. Yet worldwide, over 175 million children – nearly half of them in low-income countries – do not attend preschool programs.
Remley served in the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps during World War II and later worked as an art professor at Georgia Southern. Her papers in this collection consist of professional and personal correspondence, journals, day calendars, framed prints, and other materials.
The collection also contains an unpublished essay written by Remley entitled, “A Woman’s War,” which recounts her experience as a World War II volunteer.
