The earlier the better! You've heard this being said to urge you either to take up an opportunity or solve a problem that could easily become a conundrum. But nowhere is this axiom apt than when it comes to laying the educational foundation for your child.

It is therefore important for parent to pay more than a cursory attention to their children academic as early as they are in the pre-unit level.
