Benefits of PRESCHOOL

Preschool is important as it gives young children an opportunity to live in a classroom community, follow a routine and get along with people who are not their relatives. Interacting with children means learning to wait, share, take turns and listen. Contact with other children also develops important social skills critical to a developing personality.

Another advantage to preschool is your child begins acquiring the basics for academic learning. Foundations are laid for children to grasp phonics and reading skills through music and poetry. Sand and water play form understanding of basic math concepts and scientific investigation. Dramatic play develops language and expression. Building blocks develop problem solving skills. These foundations become stepping stones preparing your child for school and their world to come. (Source: school.familyeducation.com)
