Preparing Your Child for Education with Preschool Programs

If your toddler currently stays at home with you during the day, or attends a child care center with no focus on learning while you are at work—you may be wondering what the benefits are of selecting child care that provides early education preschool services for your toddler. Below we take a closer look at the primary advantages of sending your child to preschool.

If your toddler currently stays at home with you during the day, or attends a child care center with no focus on learning while you are at work—you may be wondering what the benefits are of selecting child care that provides early education preschool services for your toddler. Below we take a closer look at the primary advantages of sending your child to preschool.

Stimulates Learning at an Early Age

Even if you have committed to providing your children with the necessary tools such as educational apps and toys and read with them frequently—their exposure to activities centered around numbers, letters, and shapes drastically increases by seeking out quality preschool services. While this service is built around play and socialization with other children, all activities and games are designed to stimulate learning and improve communication.

Teaches Children to Socialize With Other Children Their Age

Even if your child has siblings, or you actively schedule weekly play dates—preschool is the best way to teach your child to socialize with other children their age. Attending kindergarten and elementary school will seem like less of a shock, because your child will already understand how to socialize, compromise, and be respectful of other children in a group setting. While all child care centers will provide some opportunity for developing these skills, they are taken to the next level with quality early childhood preschool services.

Familiarize Children with Educational Games and Programs

There are many educational games that you can play with your children at home to help encourage many types of learning. However, when you invest in preschool services for your toddler—the educational games and programs they participate in will have measurable goals that will help their teacher share their progress. This is important for learning what activities and educational themes to focus on at home.

More Prepared For Kindergarten

Ninety percent of our brains are developed by the age of 5, meaning that the first few years of our lives play a vital role in the level of success we achieve in our adulthood. Studies show that toddlers who attend preschool are more prepared for kindergarten—and are 75% less likely to drop out of school. They are also better developed socially and emotionally—and have an easier time going to kindergarten without concern of leaving mom, dad, or their siblings during the day.

Even if education is a priority in your home, there are skills that your child will best develop in group settings with other children their age—and more formalized preschool services. Help your child built the confidence he or she needs to succeed in the classroom by enrolling him or her in the Pittsburgh and Connecticut preschool programs from Tender Care Learning Centers.
