Abstract

Parents are concerned with what their children learn during their first five years of life. They may not realize how far reaching is their influence nor the possibilities of what they can teach their children during these early years. Bloom (1964), based on his survey of longitudinal studies of child growth estimates that in terms of intelligence measured at 17, about 50 per cent of the development takes place between conception and age 4, about 30 per cent between ages 4 and 8 and about 20 per cent between ages 8 and 17 (p. 88). Since the experiences a child has in the early years before school are so powerful and indelible, parents have the great responsibility of laying the groundwork for the child's education.
