According to officials of the ministry, the cognitive skills of children are developed in the childhood and it is necessary to provide them with educational material in accordance with their learning needs.

It will not only enhance their vocabulary, but also enhance their capabilities to understand concepts,” Secertary Shakuntala Gamlin said.
