“Why should I enroll my child in a preschool program?” This is one of the major questions parents have when they call us to enquire about our facilities. Well, there are so many answers to this question that it could take us all day to just go over the basics. However, due to time constraints, we will only go through a few of those. Take a look.
Students who complete preschool programmes are quick learners:
Well, this one should be a no-brainer. Kids completing a preschool programme not only know the basics of alphabets and numbers, but also know how to absorb and process knowledge better. As such, in the first few years of school, they usually score better than many of their counterparts, who have never seen the insides of a preschool centre.
Kids completing preschool programmes are better team players:
One of the major qualities drilled into kids attending preschool programmes is the spirit of teamwork. Kids are continually encouraged to team up with others and complete certain tasks, such as painting a picture, potting a plant, washing a palette after painting, and so on. This inculcates a strong team spirit that comes in handy at every step in their school lives.
Kids attending preschool programmes are more independent:
Another obvious advantage that does not become visible at first glance - a preschool programme makes a child more important. A preschooler learns how to pack the dishes away when done with his food. He learns how to read and comprehend passages from books, which makes him a more independent learner at nursery school, helping him secure better grades every year.
So, there you have them - major benefits of enrolling your child in a preschool programme. If you haven’t signed up your child for such a programme yet, now would be a good time to do so.
