Age group 6 to 11 years


Children aged six to 11 years, experience significant changes in their cognitive and physical abilities, which are supported by an increased focus on learning and participation through primary school, or equivalent.

Throughout this age group children are generally increasing their independence from their parents as relationships with friends, peers and teachers become more important. Children in this age group are also learning how to gain control over their emotions in different social surroundings, such as at school, with other children and with other adults.
