Starting out Right – Why Choose a Preschool Setting?

Determining the right educational and developmental opportunities for your child can be overwhelming for a parent. For some working parents, having to leave a child with a  childcare provider is a necessity. The choice of childcare is typically a daycare setting because many parents are unaware that a preschool, which is often thought to be a choice left to stay-at-home parents, can also be an option for their child.  
Learning with a Purpose
Unlike daycare settings, which typically provide basic childcare services, a preschool setting can help prepare a child for the next steps in their educational development. Preschool can start your toddler on the path to lifelong learning by incorporating play into the learning curriculum. Often this curriculum disguises learning techniques as play providing children with much needed linguistic and logic skills.

"children who attend high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not."  Preschool can also help your child assimilate to a more formalized education easier than peers who did not attend this type of learning setting. They will learn how to raise their hands, take turns and share as well as a variety of other social skills that will prepare them for future educational and developmental endeavors.
When to start
While daycare begins at as early as 6 weeks, most preschools serve children from 3-5 years old. Often these schools offer both full and part-time options so you can choose a schedule that meets both your work schedule as well as your child’s needs. Typically, the search for a preschool begins about one year before the child is ready to attend.
Trained teachers
Most preschool teachers are required to go through some sort of formalized training. This is typically an Associate’s Degree in early-childhood education. Their classroom training gives them the tools they need to understand the developmental stages of preschoolers as well as assisting them in designing enriching programs and daily curriculum to help each child reach important educational milestones.
