It is often found that many nations harp on early child education, i.e., children should start schooling from an age of four. Vis-a-vis, some countries in the world allows to start education when a child reaches seven or eight years of age. In my opinion, starting school early is better for the overall development of the child.
Yes, it is correct to some extent that starting any child’s schooling at an age of seven or eight helps them to score good marks compared to those who are just four, and it also allows them to spend more childhood time with their parents. However, this practice doesn’t always benefit their overall development.
Firstly, contemporary researches & investigations has found that the investment in early education improves not only cognitive skills or abilities, but also critical behavioural quality like sociability, motivation and self-esteem. Apart from this, researchers has also shared that children are more likely to learn more at school than they are at home, so starting earlier allows them more opportunities to learn, particularly when it comes to reading, writing, and solving mathematics. For this reason we can often see that now a days more and more play schools and pre-schools are coming up with nurturing environment for the kids, which helps them to learn in more innovative and unique ways. Few names of such schools are Kidzee & Little Laureates.
Secondly, if a kid starts early schooling then they will be able to finish earlier, hence they could get more time to gain experiences in their field of work, from whatever they have learnt.
Therefore, to conclude the concept of starting school education in early years is highly beneficial for any child because it boosts his or her personal as well as intellectual growth.
