Daycare centers provide much more than just a place for children to stay while their parents are at work—daycare introduces children to the school environment. This will give them a better understanding of what to expect from school in the future. You can help your child prepare for school by enrolling him in preschool. Preschool, or pre-kindergarten, is important because it can prepare children both socially and academically in many ways, including:
- Teach Children How to Interact with an Instructor and Their Peers
During elementary school, students learn the importance of respecting their teachers, being obedient, and showing courtesy to their fellow students. Learning how to interact with teachers and fellow students is important. It teaches you how to build relationships with different people throughout life, such as coworkers, employers, and other contacts. You can help give your child a head-start on this important lesson by enrolling them in pre-kindergarten.
- Give Children the Opportunity to Make Friends
Many children feel overwhelmed when meeting their peers. Even children with siblings can feel nervous upon meeting their new classmates. Social interaction is an important element for all children to learn. Here at Under the Sun Learning Centers, we provide a warm and welcoming environment for all children. This gives children a great opportunity to meet and start developing friendships with one another.
- Help Children with Reading, Writing, and Speaking Skills
During kindergarten and elementary school, children are exposed to a variety of stories and books. Pre-kindergarten can help prepare students for this exposure by giving them a head-start on their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. At Under the Sun Learning Centers, our pre-kindergarten Ready Readers program gives children many opportunities to practice their skills with engaging books and stories.
