So my son attends a nursery school a few hours a day and the experience of watching him grow has shown me how important school is starting at about 3 years old, or younger.
Yes, there are some very real and good changes which happen on a social level, he is learning to play with others kids and to work out any differences he has with them. I’ve seen him become more patient overall with other kids, as well as gaining a nice understanding of when he does need to stand up for himself.
Additionally, being around slightly older kids has helped to teach him more and a varied grasp of language. Additionally since the families take turns providing snacks, we see him trying a range of new foods and improving his eating habits. Overall the experience has been invaluable to his development!Tags: school
