Admission age for toddlers in school


Recommended Posts

  • Advanced Member

Aoa,

 My daughter has turned three years last December. In Pakistan, the trend is to admit toddlers of this age to montessori schools . I’m going to admit my daughter in a famous Shia school in Karachi after summer break. However, doesn’t the religion advises us to start schooling from 7 years onward. If I take that extra ordinary decision, what harm am I going to do to my child??

Wsww.

Hmm.. many children from averagely religious Muslim Shia families are literate by the age of 7. Remember the little boy Muhammad Tabatabaee who was a memorizer of Qur'an by age 4?

If your concern is the kind of exposure she will be getting at such a school then you should find her a place that is more suitable for her spiritual and academic development or home school her.

Getting an education before 7 isnt wrong per se. Getting wrong ideals ingrained at that age is what should be avoided.

Agree with above ^

Additionally, education for young children should necessarily be less structured and more fun. Young children learn best through play. 

If you visit a school and see rows of desks and strict teachers, this is not suitable for the development of toddlers, don't enroll your child there.

Three is a little too early in my opinion. Both of my kids started schools at 4.5yr. I felt some pressure from people around me telling me I am getting late and my kids will suffer. I am glad I didn't give in to the pressure.

My nephew started young, about 3 l think. He likes it.

His sister is two and started as a toddler. She did well. For example, when lil' sister went to get them at 'school', she'd get up and go get her coat (last Winter) and her shoes --neither of which she was able to put on.

They both started back, post C-19 lock-down, recently.

I started when I was 3 too, and I didn’t like it when I was this age. I use to cry a lot xD my younger brother and my elder sister started at the age of 5, they didn’t have the same problem as I. Of course every child is different.

@hasanhh My point was, younger the children more separation anxiety they will have. Also I have seen children this young don't enjoy a structured routine. I believe of the mother is a stay at home mum she can be the best teacher but like Diaz said each child is different.
