Parents are their child’s primary educators during the early years of life. They teach them the alphabet, shapes and colors as well as how to walk, speak and feed themselves.
Children need active stimulation and socialization in order to develop. In a classroom setting, teachers help children apply what they’ve been taught from their parents while giving them an opportunity to interact with other students and adults outside their immediate environment.
