      Preschool preparation

      Deciding whether your children should attend preschool is an important issue. Preschool will prepare your children for kindergarten and teach them new skills. Preschool is also a great option for parents work and want their toddlers to have broader interactive and social opportunities. Research shows that children who do not attend preschool may have trouble adjusting to kindergarten and they may fall behind in reading and academic accomplishments, but this varies from child to child.

      There are other advantages to sending your child to preschool. Students who enter pre-k tend to have higher IQ scores and fewer behavioral and social problems. They tend to have higher grades, a greater ability to concentrate and focus, and better social skills. Some studies also show that kids who attend pre-k are more likely to graduate from school and pursue higher education. It has also been said that kids who receive an early childhood education tend to earn more money and they are less likely to commit crimes. Pre-k is also an excellent option for kids who have physical or developmental disabilities and children who speak another language, and they will have an easier time learning English when they are young.

      The experts say that early childhood education works best in friendly, social, low pressure environments. Before you send your kids to pre-k, you should determine if your child is ready for it. Is your child physically, socially, cognitively, and emotionally ready for the demands of pre-k? Most children are ready for pre-k after they reach the age of 2 1/2. Can your child take care of his basic needs and use the bathroom? Can your toddler be away from you for several hours without crying? Does your child have the ability to participate in group activities and work independently? Can your child adhere to a pre-k schedule without a problem? Your child must be able to get through a preschool session without needing a nap.

      If you have decided that your child is ready for preschool, you must search for a pre-k program that meets your high standards. You should decide what is important to you. Do you want to send your child to a school that has a specific approach when it comes to learning? Do you want academics, art, or music emphasized, or does playing appeal to you more? The Montessori Program encourages toddlers to find a meaningful place in the world. The program promotes independence and practical skills, sensory, and cultural awareness are part of the program. Before you choose a pre-k program, make sure the facility is clean, safe, and stimulating. No matter what your priorities are when it comes to choosing a pre-k program for your child , there is no doubt that you will have many options to choose from and many important decisions to make.
