It goes without saying that you only want the best for your child, but do you realize what’s best for your child is also best for the community? Holmdel preschools provide early childhood education that will prepare them to excel when they enter formal school and allow your child to enter the community as intelligent, responsible and well-rounded adult. Your child’s education is not only an investment in their future but the community’s future as well.
Benefits for Your Child
Research has shown that the human brain is at its most receptive to learning from birth to three years old. Many early childhood education programs are referred to as “head start” programs and with good reason. Proper early education prepares or gives your child a head start on their formal education. If a child enters school unprepared, they can easily fall behind the rest of their classmates. The struggle to catch up often has an impact on their self-esteem and can become a stumbling block that inhibits their learning.
Early education naturally focuses on academics such as language and math skills, as well as cognitive training that develops attention and thinking skills. A high quality preschool will devote an equal amount of attention on social and emotional development. A well rounded curriculum will have programs that will offer and strengthen peer interaction. It will also include programs that promote exploratory behavior, encouraging your child’s curiosity with opportunities to try new and varied activites, possibly even giving both you and your child an early clue to their future passion.
None of this is beneficial if your child is receiving proper nutrition and participating physical activity. Whether you or the preschool provide the meals, meal times should be scheduled and monitored for intake. Your child’s nutrition should always be complimented with the proper exercise. A quality preschool will offer a physical fitness program that engages your child.
Benefits for Parents
Whenever you are not with your child, there is always concern. Enrolling them in a quality preschool with a proven track record, not only will they receive a superior education but you can be secure in the knowledge that they are in a safe and nurturing environment. This will allow you to tend to other daily responsibilities whether it be work, homemaking or your own continuing education. You will be able spend your time and energy on providing a loving and nurturing environment at home while still handling the practical issues of daily life.
Proper early education that includes educational, social, emotional, nutritional and physical programs will help your child become balanced and well-rounded person. This typically leads to a more cooperative child that is even tempered and socially active with better behavior in public and at home. This makes your job as a parent easier and could ultimately lead to a strong parent/child relationship you can both enjoy.
Benefits for the Community
Your investment in your child’s early education is not only an investment in their future but in the community’s future as well. While it may seem like a somewhat large investment now, superior quality early childhood education does have long term positive and cost saving results. Studies have shown that those who attended preschool were more likely to:
-Graduate high school and go on to attend college
-Obtain employment with increased lifelong earning potential
-Avoid poor judgement in life decisions
-Become a happy and prosperous member of the community
