In this stage of childhood, it is important that children’s creativity and curiosity is stimulated. Children in this age frame love to learn, socialize, build and execute projects, and engage with the world. They are confident, intelligent, and respectful. They pursue their interests, build upon their strengths, and strive to overcome challenges through their tenacity. In our ever-changing world, it is important that education teaches critical thinking skills, collaborative learning, innovation and creative exploration instead of mere memorization of facts.
