ParentCircle

Bill Gates Sr. once said, “The first five years have so much to do with how the next 80 turns out.”

Indeed. Your child’s preschool age could be the most important phase of her life, as it lays the foundation for her education, as well as her holistic development. And going by Gates’s words, choosing a perfect preschool for you child will play a pivotal role in determining her future aptitude.

If you are sceptical about why a preschool is so important, read this. “At preschool, they become exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes. And, more important, they learn how to socialize - get along with other children, share, contribute to circle time," says an article in Parents. In addition, preschool will teach your child many practically important things too, like tying shoe laces and cleaning up after themselves.

Now, picking the right preschool for your child could be a daunting task, especially if you are a new parent. An article in Today lists down the things you should look for in an ideal preschool:

- ABC's, 123's - early years are the time to start

- Play time every day (imaginative, physical)

- Children should have choice of some activities

- Teachers interact positively with children

- Alignment with your home values

A quality early childhood education can provide your child with cognitive, behavioural and social skills they cannot learn at home. Know more about the importance of preschool and how to pick the right one through this ClipBook.
