Zhang Wei

Elementary education, also called primary education, the primary stage traditionally found in formal education, beginning at about age 5 to 7 and ending at about age 11 to 13. In the UK and a few other countries, the term primary is employed rather than elementary. The term primary customarily refers to only the primary three years of elementary education i.e., grades 1 to three. Elementary education is usually preceded by some sort of preschool for youngsters’ age 3 to five or 6 and is usually followed by education.
