Whether we like it or not, children grow up in the blink of an eye. Before we know it, you’re taking First Day of School photos right before the bus picks them up.
We all want what’s best for our children, and that means looking ahead to what will propel them to live a successful and happy life.
One of the best ways to accomplish this is by enrolling your child in a daycare or preschool program. And here are a few reasons why:
Routine and Expectations
Many children who stay at home have a free range of toys, electronics, and food. Most of their desires are granted because of convenience and they’re in control of their own routine.
This doesn’t bode well if your child’s first exposure to routine is kindergarten. Adjusting to a routine can be difficult, and this challenge can get in the way of your child learning crucial academic and social skills.
But enrolling your child in a daycare or preschool program allows them to accommodate to a routine and understand expectations like standing in a line and raising their hand before speaking. When these foundational pieces are in place, your child is free to enjoy kindergarten.
Even if your child has excellent social skills with a handful of friends, they don’t have well-rounded social skills like introducing themselves or including new friends. This may hinder their experience in kindergarten. But enrolling your child in a preschool program allows them to practice these crucial social skills so they can have fun with their new friends in kindergarten.
