The present study is aimed to review all available literature concerning studying early childhood education, factors influencing development, the benefits of early childhood education and teacher's duty in promoting parent child relationship. The aim of the study was to identify the causes of and solutions for declining early childhood education and decreasing teacher's responsibility in promoting educational settings. Data was collected by reviewing the available evidence concerning early childhood education in relation to mental and physical health status of the child. It was found by the researcher that children require motivating and supportive environments to develop. Individual, family, home, education and society settings are all essential for child development. When children are deficient in an encouraging environment in which to gain knowledge and develop they become vulnerable and regularly need additional support. Hence, early childhood education is an essential aspect of child education which not only provides basic education according to their stage of development but also helped parents in fostering the developmental progress of their children.
