“Examination” may be a keyword that every mother who lives in the city worries about at least once. Will you take the exam or not? What lies beyond that choice? With the expansion of educational options, mothers are now required to gather new information and gain a deeper understanding of education.
Let’s not be misled by those around us, cultivate an unshakable view of education as a parent, and lead our child to a happy course. When considering elementary school entrance exams, let’s think about the essence of “education for preschoolers,” that is, “early education.” We will interview Mr. Kazuhiko Fujita, representative director of the Association for Examinations for Elementary Schools, and Mr. Masanori Eto, a doctor of education, from their respective positions.

——This time, Mr. Kazuhiko Fujita, representative director of the Association for Examinations for Elementary Schools, and educator Masanori Eto will teach us about early education. First, let me ask Mr. Fujita a very simple question. When I say “early education” in one word, I feel that the image is vague. What exactly is “early education”? What do you think is the meaning of preschool education?
Fujita: I think it’s up to each person to imagine what the word “early education” envisions. Therefore, I will talk about early education that I think. First of all, we believe that early education is not something that pursues ‘becoming able to do a specific skill’.
