Primary-aged education is the term given to educational programs and curriculums that are designed for children between the ages of 4 and 11. This encompasses preschool, primary school and early secondary school. During this period, students learn in different ways than they do during later ages; they learn through play-based activities, active exploration of their environment and through teacher-guided instruction.
The goal of primary-aged education is to provide a strong foundation in literacy, numeracy and other key skills that will serve as the basis for further learning in later years.
