TOP 3 BENEFITS OF PRESCHOOL
- Promotes early learning. Children are programmed to absorb an incredible amount of information during the preschool years. This was originally necessary for survival, but nowadays, it’s necessary for success in your child’s school career. Your preschool child’s language skills will increase as he or she is exposed to classroom discussions, thought-provoking questions, and read-aloud books. His or her math skills will increase as games are incorporated that count objects or money, as well as matching numbers and putting items in sequence. Literacy will be prominent as your preschool child sings the alphabet and begins to learn the phonetics of the English language.
- Helps to develop social and emotional skills. When preschool children get together, there will be conflicts as children struggle to understand and process large concepts, such as sharing, gratitude, helpfulness, and self-control. When your child’s emotions run high and he or she degenerates into a cry fest, the preschool teacher will step in and model and show how to deal with feelings of anger or frustration in a constructive way.
- Helps foster curiosity. When your child has questions about the wide-world, the preschool teacher will lead him or her to discover answers to those questions. Imagination is encouraged and fostered with preschool games, stories, and preschool crafts.
