Engineering young minds in early childhood education - the sooner the better!
Considerable research works have been done in the area of early childhood education and most childhood education specialists are of the view that it's highly advantageous for young minds to get enrolled in pre-kindergarten classes for better results in future.

Educators and specialist believe that young minds learn the best when they are not pushed too hard and they get more opportunity to interact with their peers & parents and teachers behave softly with them.

The results of pre-KG education are encouraging when educational activities and instructions just form a smaller part of overall day of the child.

The pre-KG classes with shorter time duration give more positive results in young minds. It is not advisable to keep kids separated from their parents for longer periods of time.

Early childhood education brings lots of benefits to a child in terms of improved social skills, enhanced attention spans and no or less dependency on special educators in subsequent classes.

Researchers also found that those children undergoing early pre-KG education are less prone to behavioral problems or not becoming involved in negative activities at adolescent or adult age.

Whereas it is highly effective to have child take interest in learning a second language at this stage, the differently-abled children also find themselves in better position to cope up with things.

It is said that a quality program with trained teachers focused on pre-KG education can have very positive and long-term impact for all.

Researchers also found that those tiny tots whose parents wish to have their children take education at home also benefit from this scenario, if they take keen interest and utilise creative ideas and activities while educating them. It is seen that in this scenario children receive more attention from parents which always goes in favour of development of young minds.

It is true that there can't be one mode of instruction/curriculum or pattern fit for all young minds. While some children excel immensely in pre-KG classes, other children might not as they all come from different backgrounds and social & economic conditions.

Whereas it is universally accepted fact that children benefit most by receiving educational instructions from their parents, but before sending the child for early KG education a parent must evaluate his or her child's unique personality as not all pre-KG programs benefit the child in the same way.
