Toddlers and infants are best prepared for schooling first by checking on their health by good diet and physical training. When the body is fit you offer a good and conducive environment to interact with other children, plying with others and modelling with others who are a bit older. Pictures and drawings are a good starter of warming up their brains to start schooling. Experiments of their age also sharpens their mind and starts to invent other sorts of plays and model.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
