In the competitive world where knowledge hold no boundaries, imposing too much of education on children below the age of six years do not serve as good as anticipated. Having the basic knowledge of language and basic math is important but the level of knowledge provided should be kept under supervision, especially in the case of young children.

Primary schools take special care in this regard covering basic academic learning and social skills. Along with formal education that involves making the children sit in classrooms and learn as their teacher recites the lesson, primary schools also focus on how children develop other personal qualities such as patience, humor, communication skills, flexibility, and creativity.

Progressive Learning

The main motive to develop a proper curriculum for the academic learning process is – Progressive Learning. Children develop academic skills such as reading, basic calculations, music and art as they grow with age. Imposing subjects that are too difficult to learn and understand for children can make them unsuccessful in their academics and even make them lose their confidence level.

On the other hand, children who start their education with play-based and informal methods of education can hold superior learning skills. Researchers suggest that children involved in the constructional, social and physical play at the very initial stages develop higher intellectual and emotional “self- regulation” abilities which prepares them to study challenging subjects in the later age.

Active Exploration and Environment

Children that are introduced to proper curriculum right from the primary years of education have observed to be more socially active and emotionally strong. They quickly tend to understand organizational and personal responsibility among their peers as well as their surroundings.

The properly organized academic curriculum also makes them explore their strengths and challenges (socially, recreationally and academically) as they work in groups and on individual projects in pre- school.

As these children reach junior high schools, they start to refine their academic, social and personal interests having an experience of the preschool playgroup activities. Such children also tend to be better followers of what their teachers and instructors teach at the higher level of studies and achieve high performance at school.

The organized level of subjects in according to the age of children, therefore, is critical for child development. They tend to shape the personality of the child as he or she develops mental ability and understanding as they grow into young adults.
