Today the fast economic growth of a country depends on the expansion of knowledge. We need to raise the children in such a way that they can benefit and participate in the economic growth. In order to benefit from and handle the knowledge explosion the learning skills should be developed right from the early childhood so that education becomes a life long process.

Along with the economic growth there is an ever-increasing fear that unless there is an attitudinal change the world is nearing a global disaster. Once again it places an onus on education system to ensure a holistic development of children with a focus not only on their cognitive development but also on their social, emotional and physical development and to manifest in them universal love, unselfishness and compassion for healthy interpersonal relations.

Due to the demands of fast changing modern life it has become essential that children learn a large group of Interpersonal and Psycho-social abilities which can help them in making informed decisions, communicate effectively, and develop coping and self-management skills. These abilities are called Life skills. Thus there is a need for life skills and learning skills to be a part of curriculum.
