PARENTS play a pivotal role in the fight for childhood education.

This was the message at yesterday's Arya Samaj Primary School Kindergarten preschool week celebration.

Teacher Suman Lal said according to the theme Quality Childhood, Quality Future, effective childhood education should be an encouragement to all parents.

"So we request parents to support their children in early childhood education because it plays a vital role in their development," Ms Lal said.

"It is very important that parents do their best with their children because their mind is developing very fast and when we tell them something, they will never forget it throughout their life."

Yesterday, students were dressed up in their favourite cartoon characters as part of the celebration.
