Your child can grow pretty fast without you realizing it. One day they are in their diapers and next they are ready for their first day of preschool. Preschool is an important part of your early child’s learning and development.
According to research conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, children attending preschool showcase stronger math and language skills.
Preschool is not only about studies but also an opportunity for your children to meet and interact with children within their age group. Pre-schools also aid in the development of your child’s social skills and offers them a chance to interact with children of their age.
Some studies recommend that your child’s learning and social development can be hindered by the complex combination of your child’s temperament, peers your child is placed with, the situation at home, the experience of bullying or aggression at the pre-school.
Pre-schools are a period of transition for your child wherein they enter a completely different environment from their home environment. They can experience stress and anxiety during the initial periods, however, with time, most children get used to the transition and learn to cope with the change.
As your child is about to turn 3 years old, they start displaying and much more reasonable behavior as they have developed the capacity of understanding and obeying rules. This period makes it perfect for enrolling your child in a pre-school.
Around the age of three, your child vocabulary increased from 900 words to 3000 words. While you might enjoy cute little words and phrases coming from your child’s mouth, your child learns to use words to express themselves.
By the age of three, your child can learn to throw a ball overhead, learns the difference between “now” and “later,” gain more control over their mobility and balance and much more.
