Question:

Is one required to seek forgiveness from a person they have hurt prior to being bar/bat mitzvah?

Answer:

A minor who transgressed or sinned should try to repent when he becomes of age after bar mitzvah. So therefore one should try and seek  forgiveness from a person they have hurt prior to being bar/bat mitzvah.
