Role of Primary Education in Child Development

primary education

Primary education is a vital need for every child. We all know that these young buds are our future and how you treat them today, they will reproduce it tomorrow. So, a quality education system and right path can nourish their mind accurately.

Children at an early age require proper attention and right insights so that their minds can get the right track for the future. Better primary education can provoke a young mind with curiosity, a path that can lead them to be better human beings as well as better citizens. These young minds can imitate what they are taught to do. You might have observed at your house or in surroundings, Children of 0-3 ages are so active and sharp. They might not listen to you, but their actions will be the same as what you performed in front of them. They are better imitators!!

The learning process is just like an instrument, that can be used to mold one’s personality and perceptions about life. Just to take them out of the bookish knowledge to real-world problems, primary education is paving ways for a successful life ahead.

Primary education is just like all the care and attention you give to a seed sown in your garden. If you take proper care and attention, that tree will be beneficial for you in the future with deep roots connectivity. And if you don’t look after it won’t be able to benefit you and you will find yourself at loss.

It must focus on building cognitive thinking, the ability to handle difficult situations, and other practical life problems.


Primary education should focus on the main aspects of an individual’s personality so that they can live a confident life once they are into adulthood.

Social Activities:

School learning plays a vital role in developing the social skills of a child. As most of the time, children are only interacting with their parents or family members. Primary education provides an opportunity for them to interact with people of their age groups. This competitive environment leads them to learn communication skills, friendship, strategies to deal with others, etc. In short, this provides a proper channel for them to make their future life successful in regards to moving in society confidently.

Mental Growth:

Early age schooling is just like a river stream to which children are exposed to. That gives them an opportunity to grasp all the knowledge of various fields. That age is about cultivating an individual’s thought process. Without differentiating that everyone has different backgrounds, various languages cultures, and norms. All that matters is that everyone can learn and expose themselves to the world of unlimited knowledge.

Physical Development:

One of the most favorite parts of children’s when they are growing. But how to make the environment reliable and more informative is all about planning that phase carefully. These small physical activities build an environment that is boosting them up for competition with their fellow beings. These activities are the vital source of polishing the creativity of children. Using that energy positively in activities like crafting, sports, similar situations lead to the creativity of some new thing or situation handling.


Not everyone is having a background of educated and well-settled families. Everyone has different cultural background and they have their own priorities. Those who are exposed to primary education earlier are prone to lead a successful life than those who are lacking primary education. I believe that primary education is a building block for anyone’s bright future. Lacking early schooling leads to low confidence growth which leads to so many difficulties in practical life. Timely investment in primary education helps to build a developed nation. Because what you are cultivating today will be produced tomorrow.

According to UNICEF, investment in preschool and early childhood education yields higher returns. Other than any other level of education, with the greatest impacts felt among poorer children.

The absence of early education leads one to lifelong problems of cognitive thinking, lack of emotional and physical skills. If you want to see how many countries will be developed in the future, look at the investment and efforts they are putting in primary education of their nation.


IF you want to prosper and be on the list of developed countries, focus your primary education. As, after poverty and hunger this is the most demanding issue to be highlighted. Countries like Pakistan where literacy rate is not up to the mark specially the decreased rate of primary education. Should focus on the change and revolution in the education system and pay attention to early schooling. If you are not nurturing your buds properly then don’t expect they will bloom properly.
