All of our children are facing more competition for spots at the top K-12 schools and will face even-fiercer competition in higher education. Starting their education early is the best way to ensure little ones succeed and excel. Sending them to a Tribeca preschool and enrichment center that specializes in educating young children and providing them with their first proper school experience before they enter Kindergarten will provide them an early advantage.
The academic benefits gained from sending your child to a preschool often last for years, and they gain other clear benefits as well. These are just a few of the ways that the right preschool can prepare your child to succeed!
1. Early experience with learning environments
The earlier a child is exposed to classrooms and learning settings, the more ‘normal’ it will be for them. Many children who don’t enter school until they’re 5-6 have a hard time adjusting, whereas children who began preschool when they were 2-4 will barely even remember a time when they weren’t going to school.
2. Exposing them to new ideas early on
There’s only so much that a family on their own can show to a child. Enrichment centers open them up to a world of experiences and learning they wouldn’t normally see for many more years. Along with getting them accustomed to learning, the wide variety of new experiences can make them excited for learning. At Playgarden Prep we use different learning methodologies so each little one will start to be exposed to the different forms of learning – every child is different, why shouldn’t they learn in different ways?
3. Encouraging them to develop skills and hobbies
School isn’t only about classroom learning, it’s also about exploring one’s interests while developing them into skills. Even extremely young children can have preferences, such as enjoying music more than art, or vice versa. A good preschool will have numerous options for them to explore their talents and find skills they enjoy developing.
4. Better socialization and emotional growth
As your children move on in school, and out into the world, they’ll be called upon to interact successfully with many different kinds of people. This is a skill that should be cultivated as early as possible! Preschools and enrichment centers allow your child to practice their socialization from an early age, which also leads to improved emotional development.
