Your kids are like the plants you sustain in your gardens or parks—the more you nourish them and take care of them, the more they will bear fruits. Actually, the preschool period for your wards is just like growing plants that need their roots to be strengthened at the initial stage per se so that they always remain strong enough to grapple with the challenges of life. This is the phase of life when the kids’ base needs to be strengthened. If the base is strong, the giant structure can stand well on it; otherwise it may collapse. A specific study conducted by the researchers on more than 1,700 students found that those who participated in preschool through a Head Start program scored better in math by the grade 8. Other relevant studies including this specific one substantiate the importance of preschool. So, what crucial aspect pertains to your wards in such a tender age is your being meticulous about their upbringing, especially their educating in preschool stage.
What is preschool?
Educating the students in their early childhood before they begin the necessary education at a primary school is regarded as preschool. It can also be called a nursery school or the centre of early learning. Preschools are either private or public. The students’ age at such schools depend upon the establishment. Generally, Daycare gets the admission of the kids up to two and half years old, the age in Preschools remains between three and four, and the students in Pre-Kindergarten are usually between four and five years age.
Why Preschool merits paramount importance?
As elucidated above, Preschool for your kids is as important as roots merit for tiny plants. If your child attends a preschool, he/she can score better and will minimize absenteeism on reaching middle school standard because Preschooling makes the students punctual in attending their schools. Second reason is that attending of preschool brushes aside their hesitation and reluctance to go to schools regularly. One more important reason why to send your kids to Preschool is that this is the stage when these tiny tots learn etiquette and manners of all kinds besides making their minds up for doing well in educational pursuits.
Aristotle, the legendary Greek philosopher said, “Man is by nature a social animal”. Obviously, human beings are social creatures. However, the way or mode of socialisation has changed with the development of technologies. Earlier, we used to meet people and write letters, but today we are more comfortable in texting, messaging, emailing, and video-calling and so on. While in preschool, your ward can learn necessary social skills that comprise learning to listen, to talk politely, to be bold, and exude acceptance and clemency. All these skills help your wards become gentle personality adorned with appreciable virtues.
Parents must devote their personal time
Nobody can deny that today life is too fast to spare for anything apart from the time spent on earning the source of livelihood. Nevertheless, you also can’t deny the fact that your children are not only a source of support in your old-age but also the future of their nation. So, it is incumbent upon you slash time from your daily schedule and devote it to your wards teaching them what you expect them being taught in their schools.
Structured academic career
Preschools help the students learn structure from quite a tender age. Getting together at the same building, at the same time prepares them for their higher schooling. It also reduces the level of their reluctance to go to their school making them punctual in this respect. Thus, a Preschool facilitates a more relaxed environment to help them prepare themselves for a more requisite and structure academic career.
You feel afraid and much hesitated while enrolling your kids into a preschool for the first time, but their bright future remains latent in this initiative. Once they get admission in preschool, it paves the way to their higher education and further success in life, thereby glorifying your name as well as that of their nation.
