According to Webster’s dictionary a child who is old enough to talk and walk but who is too young to go to school: a child who goes to a preschool is considered as ‘Preschooler’. Preschool is the period when the child comes from his home environment and explores the outside world while attending Day Care Centers, Nursery schools or Anganwadi. It may also be called early childhood age, pregang age, the age of exploration, problem age, and a less appealing age. Childhood begins when the relative dependency of babyhood is over, at the age of two years, and extends to the time when the child becomes sexually mature at thirteen years for girls and fourteen for boys. Childhood period is now divided into - early and late childhood. Early childhood extends from two to six years and late childhood from six to the time when the child becomes sexually mature.
