There can often be a misunderstanding with the differences between preschool and childcare. Childcare can be a great option for busy parents that need somebody to look after their child whilst at work but with preschool 3 and 4 year old children are not only looked after but are also exposed to early learning techniques with shapes and numbers. Studies have shown (ref NIEER) that children that go to a quality preschool start kindergarten with stronger pre reading skills as well as improved vocabularies and basic maths skills.
As well as the above skills children that have attended these kind of schools show strong socializing skills and a greater level of confidence. The only real downside to preschool is that the terms only run from September to May.
Whatever expectations you have for your child growing up, maybe a doctor, a lawyer or a more creative career possibly creating womens designer shoes for the fashion industry or working in film and TV, it is always best to give them every advantage in terms of learning and bettering themselves no matter what their age. This is why preschool could prove instrumental if the right program and school is chosen at an early stage in their lives.
