In February 2015, a UK newspaper reported about how 2 year-olds should be playing and not be in school, after evidence suggested that it may poorly align the development needs of young children that contravenes their underlying human nature. The idea may sound absurd to Asian parents who are used to lining up extra classes on top of nursery school hours for their toddlers.
