School, as a citadel of learning, is very important in the life of a child. Just as the home and the environment where a child grows up have a great impact on the child, so too does the school.

The school is where the child spends most of his time during the day and is therefore very important in the life of the child.

School, as an institution of socialization, is where the child learns a lot, apart from the family, which is the first institution of learning.

There are so many reports across different schools where some children are abused, either sexually or physically harassed, and some of these cases lead to the death of the child.

Therefore, it is important to enroll your child so he can be protected, not only to learn, because many of those cases of abuse arise out of the negligence of the teachers.

If they enter the classroom and learn, they do not care what happens to the children when they are outside to play.

Another thing to consider is that you may find out that children from some schools do excellently well. This is because of the good teachers that they have and also because of the conducive environment in which they have to learn.

Gone are the days when parents sent their children to school just to secure a white-collar job, but things have changed now.

Parents send their children to school to learn so that they can interact with and work in the outside world.

Today is not about the certificates you obtain, but about what you can deliver and the skills you have.
