During the first year of preschool, your child will learn more than you might think. Knowing what your child will learn and finding fun ways to make learning each thing will help your child excel right from the start. Below, you will find a few ideas that can help your child pick up the early learning quickly.
Many preschools start working with the little ones to help them learn how to recognize and write their names.
Making educational decisions for a child can be a stressful task for any parent. Education is the basis for many opportunities in the modern world, and it should be no surprise that parents want to make the best choices possible for their children. Sadly, this can be a difficult task for those that are not particularly aware of the various options that are available to them. In particular, charter schools are a relatively new option that is often poorly understood by parents.
Enrolling your baby in swimming lessons around 6 months to 1 year of age is an excellent time to start them. The water is a very natural place for them to be since they spent all of their time in the womb submersed in water, so starting them young makes a lot of sense. The lessons will remain very basic and will not stress or pressure you or your child in anyway.
Most preschools require children be potty trained, or somewhat potty trained, before they can enroll in a preschool program. This can be a difficult task to take on, especially if you have a little one that just isn't ready to be out of diapers yet, or refuses to use the potty. There isn't a magic age where children become potty trained; every child is different. Some children get it right away, and some take a little longer to get the concept down.
Bringing your toddler to his or her first day of preschool can be an emotional experience for the both of you. There are bound to be tears (if not from your little one, then from you) as well as worries. Yet, entering preschool is an important step in your child's development. In order to ensure the day goes as smoothly as possible, try following these tips.
Get up early.
Especially if you're up late worrying the night before, you might be tempted to press the snooze button that morning.
