The centre to which you choose to send your child, is important. A child’s earlier years are the most impressionable. This is the period where communication skills are gained, they learn to work with other children, learn to express themselves, solve problems, develop necessary physical skills, and build an appreciation of the world around them.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
