First five years are very important for overall development of a child. In a preschool the child learns from the play way method. Children who go to preschool have significantly shown better academic results, higher IQ, lesser antisocial behaviour than the ones who did not attend preschool. The mother will be getting assistance in child care and will be having higher opportunities to go out to work when she sends her child to a preschool.
Toys which helps a child develop his skills by play way method are puzzles, building blocks, puppets etc.
In a preschool a child learns social skills like how to speak, behave in the public. He learns to share and care with other playmates. He starts using words like thank you, sorry. His listening and speaking skills get improved. They get better prepared to enter a school. His academics are now being emphasized.
Things to be taken care when sending your child to preschool.
The school should be clean and safe. There should be appropriate books and toys. Meet your child’s class teacher regularly. A good teacher talks with children, asks questions and answer their questions patiently. She will boost their self confidence and answer all your doubts about your child’s progress. You can even visit the classes.
It is always good to toilet-train your child before sending to preschool.
