Preschool is an important time in a child’s development. Children are naturally curious and observant. A quality preschool program provides not only a foundation for learning academically, but also for developing social and emotional skills in an environment where children can explore, problem solve, build self-confidence and play with peers.
Build a Foundation for Success
Preschools teach children to be learners. In addition to learning letters, numbers and shapes, they learn how to follow rules, how to pay attention in a classroom setting, how to interact and listen to their classmates and how to deal with their emotions. The structured setting of a classroom also teaches a child how to share and follow directions. These experiences help to set children up for success when they start school as kindergartners.
Develop Social and Emotional Skills
A child who attends preschool starts to build social relationships with people outside of his or her family or close inner circle of friends. Preschool programs nurture a child’s relationship with teachers and other children. It is a good opportunity for young children to learn through experiences and teachable moments as they become more independent and make decisions without a parent. They begin to start working through some of their own problems, become more aware of other’s feelings, interact in groups and build trust with other adults. This is good for a child’s social and emotional development.
Foster Curiosity and Creativity
Preschool teachers engage children’s curiosity and creativity which nurtures their motivation to learn. Curriculum in preschool programs often includes fostering imagination through pretend play, engaging in musical activities, exploring different interests and developing creativity through a variety of art materials. Creative play fuels learning and further develops social and emotional skills, language skills and problem solving skills.
Become Enthusiastic Learners
The groundwork for successful educational experiences and a lifetime of learning starts in preschool. A high-quality program ensures your child is building the knowledge, skills and confidence to do well in kindergarten while having fun and making new friends.
