Preschool Education Or Not?

Preschool Education should be a high priority in any parents life!

Preschool education is the prerequisite of education for kids before they start formal education. It is usually between the ages of two and five. It is also called nursery school or kindergarten. It is proven that the most important time of learning is between birth and five years. Their brains are like little sponges and if they are exposed to quality childcare you can be guaranteed to have a child that will succeed in formal education.  

You have two options for your kid's preschool education:  

Type of Preschool Education

Stay at Home Parent

  • More and more moms choose to stay at home during this time. It is a huge sacrifice but well worth it. The benefits are endless. 

  • Day care is costly and nobody knows your child better than you. The social and emotionaldevelopment you can give your child is better than any preschool you can find. Please understand that I'm not saying that preschool education at other institutions are bad for your child, I'm just saying that you are the mother and you know your child better than anyone. You know his/her strong and weakpoints.

Kindergarten, public or private preschool

If you decide to sent your kids to a preschool, this is the basic skills you can expect them to learn:

  • Personal, social and emotional skills

  • Better communication

  • Knowledge of what is going on around them i.e.: Weather, Transport etc.

  • Creative development

  • Physical development

  • Math and Language

Choosing a preschool that is best for your child is not as easy. If you are not going to homeschool preschool your child then here are a few tips for making sure your kids have the best: 

The Method of Teaching Preschool

  • Montessori

  • Waldorf

  • Head Start

  • Homeschool  

  • Call your favourite preschools  

Secure a place

I remember when my son was born, I phoned a preschool that everyone was talking about and was told that I need to pay a deposit and get him registered immediately. That will secure his place for when he starts preschool. Excellent preschools are in demand.

Ask questions

Unplanned visit

Visit the preschool without lettingthem know you are coming. That way you will see exactly what is going on and if they are trying to hide anything. Trust your instincts, first impressions last.

Let your child choose

Take your child to a few of your favourite preschools and ask how each one made him/her feel.

Talk to the preschool teacher

You need to ask them questions like: What are the meal arrangements? Ask to see the kitchen - yes, I know that is difficult but you need to know how and where the food is made.

Talk to parents

Wait for parents that are picking up their children. Ask them about the school?

Know your child's learning style

It is important to know how your child learns. You also need to know in what environment he will flourish. Structured,unstructured, organised etc. Choose the preschool that will support his personality.

Preschool education is a wonderful start for any child. Whether it is at home or at a preschool.

Start A Preschool (Not a Daycare) and Make Money At Home With Your Children

Things are pretty tough financially at the moment for many of us. So I just wanted to mention my friend Joy Anderson and her solution.

Joy is a single mom with 3 kids - she wanted to stay at home and look after them but desperately needed an income. So what did she do.

She started her own Preschool Classes, right out of her own home.

Joy is now making a full-time income only working 5 hrs a day.

She is an amazing lady and now she is showing others how to do it for themselves.

You can find out about how she set up her own preschool here.
