According to the World Bank collection of development indicators in 2021, 6 years is the average starting age of children in Nigerian schools. This insight is key to the choice of school.
Hence, going by the 6-3-3-4 education system in Nigeria, a child would spend 12 foundational years from primary to secondary excluding any complications while studying.
Breaking these numbers further down, means the child spends between 6-8 hours a day in school starting from 8am on a regular day. With various factors such as parent’s schedule, location, and other key determinants, there is a high chance of that child spending most of his/her active time in the school environment.
What this means for parents is that the choice of school for their children/wards require deep consideration and thorough research. The 12 foundational years are critical to the development of a child as what he/she becomes to society would be a result of the educational background.
