“There is increasing evidence that children gain a lot from going to preschool,” says Parents advisor Kathleen McCartney, PhD, dean of Harvard Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts. When your child attends a quality preschool, he or she will learn basic skills, character development, and social skills, while having fun and maximizing his or her brain development.
Building your child’s potential
The preschool years allow your child to become better prepared to enter kindergarten or elementary school and to develop better reading, math and communication skills. Your child will also make friends, and in interacting with others, will learn valuable social and behavioral skills. These skills will form the foundation for future academic and personal success. Preschool provides your child the ability to learn about oneself and others, while developing his or her brain through hands-on, multisensory play.
A safe, secure and mistake-friendly environment
To grow strong and develop positively, your child needs to have an environment where they can learn through making mistakes, solving personal and analytical problems, and not being afraid to try new experiences. This kind of environment is surprisingly rare outside of preschool, but is one of the greatest advantages that a high quality preschool can provide. Your child can learn to explore, experiment and share with others what they learn. Since children learn better when they are actively engaged and having fun, you need to choose a preschool that understands this and provides a fun, learning-centric environment.
