Fuqnan (Delang: ƒєьнан (feuqnan), IPA: /føqnan/, Kirsh: fYqnan, CXS: f2qnan), age of enrollment, is the stage of childhood development where the child develops their basic personality and their basic knowledge of how the world works. The stage starts when the child becomes literate and ends when puberty begins. There is a gender difference in when the end of the stage in which boy will mature and enter the next stage about a year later then girls. The stage is preceded by Zoznan, the age of consciousness, and followed by Kunan, the age of knowledge.
During this stage most children will start attending school, though school attendance is not compulsory. Most Followers of Leisha and followers of other minor religious groups refuses to allow their children to attend public schools, and will either home school or send their children to private schools. Either is acceptable as the curriculum for primary school level focuses on developing basic writing, reading and math skills. In addition public schools will teach the children the facts about The faith of the Gods.
To be applicable to attend public school the child has to write a short essay by their own hands and read an essay written by another child, chosen at random. Most private schools will require a similar minimum requirement for accepting attendance.
In addition to marking the enrollment into a primary school, the change in stage also marks the following changes for the child:
- The child is allowed to choose which clan it will mark as its primary.
- The child is given leave to spend the nights at any friend in the local community without requiring a parent's consent.
- The child is be allowed to create a credit, and will use it to buy their first Zeeron, a tablet computer.
- The child will earn a salary for school assignment and attendance. (Home schooled children will only earn a salary for required tests taken in a public or private school.)
- A celebration is held to significate the child's change in status.
- In Illomi society there is a distinct difference between being a parent and being parental. The former refers to the child's primary parental adults, usually the child's biological parents, while the latter refers to any adult who has developed a parental relation with the child.
