When you think about Pre-schools, what do you envision?
Are you afraid that your child is too small to be placed in such a structured environment?
Does it scare you, how they might cope with the separation from their parents?
So, don’t be. Pre-school can only help your child.
Studies say: The 1.5 to 6-year olds are like little sponges at that age. They can take in so much; even more than you think. You as a parent should make use of this time to equip your little ones with the skills they need in their lives.
Reasons, why your child should attend a Pre-school?
- Children learn to stay away from their parents in a structured environment with teachers and other children. Here, a 3 year old child is able to build trusting relationships with teachers, outside the family. They meet the children of their age, they interact, and they make friends leading to their social and emotional development.
- A pre-school provides opportunities for children to grow, to learn, to share, follow the instructions and begin the foundation for learning that will occur in elementary school.
- Children learn to help others; they learn to take care of themselves and their belongings such as their bottles, tiffin, bags etc. They learn how to keep the things in a proper and organized manner.
- Children here learn to eat, learn to sit, their language skills get developed. They learn to make choices. They observe whatever goes around, they ask questions. A pre-school nurtures children’s curiosity and motivates them to learn through different activities. Here the imagination power of children is given a new color through puppet shows, stories etc.
- High-quality preschool programs provide several opportunities daily for children to run, climb, and play active games. Activities are offered to help children develop fine motor skills, such as threading beads or cutting with scissors. And children are challenged through a variety of activities to build their hand-eye coordination and balance.
- Here, they get indulged in activities that boost up their pre-math and literacy skills. They get familiar with numbers, alphabets. Their listening, comprehension, and expressive language skills get developed. They learn sequencing, arranging, sorting, noticing patterns, solving puzzles and problems.
- Generally Pre-Schools are located nearby the homes of toddlers, so they do not have to undergo a long distance travel in a bus.
