As rightly said by Bill Gates; ‘The first five years have so much to do with how the next eighty turn out’. Good parenting and high quality early learning and care together provide the foundation required by children to make most of their abilities and talent as they grow up. Most of the schools have a predetermined curriculum for early child education and the focus in on teaching by the book. Instead the focus for children between the age group of 3-6 needs to be more on learning than teaching and the learning is delivered through an “Exploration and Play” method. Learning through play allows children to be creative, to explore and investigate materials and to draw and test their conclusions, this then helps in sustaining their interests and motivates them to learn.
