It is never too early to start preparing your child for an exam.
This is a controversial topic I find myself having sometimes with parents.
I always get comments like ‘let them be children’, ‘it is way too early’ when conversations like this come up. Most relate starting early as putting too much pressure on the child.
I actually think it is the other way round with pressure. If you leave the preparation too late, there is more pressure on the child to do well in their exam.
My thing is you can start preparing your child for an exam early without name tagging it; 11+, GCSEs, SATs…
Reading every day should be encouraged, learning all of their times table at an early age will go a long way.
Also ensuring they can spell most common words and having a nice balance routine of both study and extracurricular activities are all part of the preparation process to forming a nicely balanced individual.
Serena Williams learnt how to play tennis from her father at a very young age, she went on to win 23 Grand Slam singles titles, the most by any player in the Open Era has won. She started early.
Likewise Simone Biles, an American gymnast who started gymnastics from age 6 and went on to achieve a combined total of 30 Olympic and World Championship medals.
The same principles can be applied to preparing your child to succeed in their education, start early!
