Understanding the Benefits of Preschool
Q. What will my three year old learn in preschool that I can’t teach him at home?
A. All learning starts at home. While this isn’t an option for many parents, finding an excellent preschool program that will partner with you in caring for your child is essential. A preschooler will thrive in the right environment where they are loved, nurtured and encouraged. A great preschool program helps strengthen your child’s social and emotional development, allowing them to explore, interact and play with others their age. Learning to make decisions independent of their parents and learning to interact within a group setting through playing in centers and group time, fosters independence and confidence. A language-rich environment is pertinent to their vocabulary and will benefit their speech. They will also begin learning pre-math and pre-literacy skills and gain fine and gross motor skills. And finally, your child should have fun and develop a positive attitude towards learning.
