Preschool is where children aged three to five begin their official education. Parents may be sceptical about the benefits of preschool education and its effectiveness in preparing children. Here are the five benefits of sending your child to preschool.
#1 Advance Emotional and Social Skills
Preschool, whether in Sengkang or anywhere else in Singapore, is an excellent setting for youngsters to develop their social and emotional abilities. Exposure to and contacting other people aids their growth, which involves a wide range of emotions.
#2 Better Cognition and Welfare
Preschool education may help youngsters deal with psychological stress by teaching them how to manage their behaviour. Preschool-age children are more likely to have a healthy body mass index. Pressure and behavioural issues can contribute to an increased risk of obesity in young children.
#3 Better Educational Performance
According to one study, children who underwent full-time kindergarten and preschool education have better language and math abilities. It proves to be useful later in life.
#4 Smooth and Quick Adjustment
A child that attends preschool education can adjust to trends and scenarios better. A youngster who has postponed preschool exposure by a year (known as redshirting) may enter a preschool class with most pupils a year younger than them and find it challenging to adjust.
#5 Promotes Independence
Children that had preschool education tend to become more independent. They also become more responsible when it comes to matters that concern them and their immediate surroundings.
