Growing Up Too Fast?

Will preschool cut into important play time and push my child to grow up too fast? Your child’s first years of school should be filled with wonder and excitement. It’s a time of incredible emotional, social, physical, and intellectual development. The basic math and literacy skills learned at this stage, such as letter sounds and counting, will help build a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning. However, parents should not have to choose between protecting play time and making sure their child is ready for kindergarten. Study after study have proven that young children learn best through play and creative activities. A high-quality preschool program like Bonnie Academy understands this, and will offer preschoolers an effective balance of both. To nurture a child’s excitement and motivation for learning, these programs introduce early literacy and math skills through activities that are engaging and meaningful to children. Learning songs or engaging children in a discussion about an exciting story read aloud builds listening, comprehension, and language skills. Sorting or counting games build children’s understanding of numbers, categories and sequence, which supports later math learning. The staff at high-quality preschools and child care programs understand how young children develop and learn, organizing space, time and activities that inspire and strengthen children’s social, emotional, cognitive, and physical abilities.
