The process of choosing a preschool can be a daunting task, but there are steps that parents can take to ensure they find the right fit for their own child. Above all they must trust their own decisions as parents!
"Why is preschool so important?
During the first few years of a child’s life, his/her development and learning occur faster and are maintained better than at any other time in his/her life. Children whose learning and development is supported during these critical years will not simply be better prepared for formal Kindergarten schooling, but will also start to acquire many of the foundational experiences and skills that are necessary for them to become productive and happy adults.
Preschool is valuable to children’s development in that early childhood educators can play a crucial role in identifying children who may be at risk for developmental delays. These children can be quickly assessed and, if needed, begin to receive any special education services that they may require.
Overall, early childhood education is a significant factor in children’s future development, and preschool, an integral part of this experience, helps to set children on a positive path of learning as they grow and mature."
