“The best indicator of quality Day Care is the child wants to go there, and does not want to go home.” – Edward Zigler, American development psychologist
The concept of ‘Day Care’ has assumed great importance in today’s times thanks to nuclear families, full-time working parents, over-burdening responsibilities as well as dearth of time and resources. Offering multifarious benefits, it is today a very popular concept in the realm of early education and immensely benefits the parents, care-givers as well as the children.
A much-needed facility today
Why do we need to enrol our children in Day Care? In the first three years of a child’s growth, the excess of synapses (electrical impulses) produced in the brain accounts for the responsiveness to external input – children at this age can “capture” experiences more efficiently than any adult. It thus becomes imperative to engage the young minds efficiently since they are most vulnerable to negative influences. It is for this reason that investing in Day Care facilities for their children becomes the best bet for busy parents who cannot dedicate enough time to their little ones owing to their stiff work schedules.
Dedicated teachers and care-givers in the Day Care centres effectively look after the children, nurturing and offering them positive experiences that have a huge effect on their future achievements, success and happiness.
Multifarious benefits of Day Care
- Maintaining a regular schedule and routine: Day Care is a happy place where the kids are engaged in fun and learning activities such as singing, storytelling, reading, art and craft. These activities become crucial to the child’s intellectual growth and development. Not only does the child pick up the nuances of participation, socialization, interaction and communication, he also develops an understanding of structured timing and discipline.
- Academic advancement: An extensive study by the U.S. National Institute of Health has indicated that children who have spent quality time in reputed Day Care facilities fare better and have higher cognitive performance as teenagers. As recipients of quality child-care, they are better prepared for studies as well as extra-curricular activities. They grow to be curious, smart communicators with a problem-solving strategic bent of mind, and are naturally more confident.
- Increased confidence: Day Care empowers the children to be confident and comfortable in social interactions. The process of learning interpersonal skills at a young impressionable age helps them hone their self-esteem. The supervised environment at the centre becomes an excellent forum for them to learn how to communicate effectively, thereby preparing them for a bright and secure future.
- Instilling independence: Attending a Day Care helps children develop independence at a young age. In the absence of their parents and other family members, they forge a connection with themselves and their teachers. Furthermore, they are encouraged to participate in meaningful activities like playing with toys and reading books that instils a sense of independence in them.
- Fun and friends: Children at a Day Care are given opportunities to play games and enjoy themselves, with the opportunity to forge friendships that lead to development of the spirit of teamwork as well as the zeal of participating in events.
