This study examines the role of Nursery education among primary school pupils. The sole objective of the study was to find out the differences in academic achievement between primary school pupils who received nursery education and those who did not. Descriptive survey research design was adopted to achieve the study objective. Consequently, 20 primary one pupils from Christ the King Nursery and Primary school Okene, Kogi State ten each from those that received nursery education and those that did not receive nursery education participated in the study. Five generic frames--numeric skills, sentence construction, verbal expression, creativity and writing skills- were used to measure pupils' academic achievement. The result showed a marking difference between the two set of pupils with pupils who attended nursery schools performing better. The researcher thus recommends among others that the government of Nigeria should encourage parents to send their children to nursery schools. Keywords: education, examine, nursery, and primary
