“A young mind when stretched by new ideas never regains its original dimensions” – Anonymous
It is only through the medium of learning that a far more knowledgeable individual is created. It is thus important to start educating your child early to facilitate them to pursue their own ideas and expand their horizons.
Early learning is critical in the long run
The founder, mentor and principal of Wings Ms. Neeta Kanoria is always a firm believer in the saying: “You are what you eat for breakfast”. In other words, this stresses the importance of early childhood education from the age of 0-6 years, when the brain is most receptive. Healthy early learning entailing physical, social, emotional, linguistic, cognitive and communicative development strongly affects mental and physical health, literacy and numerical skills-sets and the overall quality of life.
It helps the child understand the world better, including themselves and people around them. This amalgamation of their own desire with the requirements of the world and finding ways to deal with it are one of the main challenges confronting children of the preschool age. It is for this reason that almost all parents are enrolling their children into preschool education nowadays.
Importance of preschool education
Scientists all over the world have conducted studies on the importance of preschool in a child’s life. It has been unanimously concluded that it leads to significant brain-development in those early years. In fact, according to the National Institute of Early Education Research (NIEER) in the United States of America, children who attend a good preschool develop a better pre-reading, Maths and Science skills than those who do not attend this form of early education.
It also marks the first time that young children spend time away from the secure zone of their parents. Thus the ambience in the institution must have enough to attract the children and make them feel secure while they are away from their loved ones, simultaneously promoting a conducive learning environment.
The benefits of attending preschool are actually manifold. Some of the more pertinent ones include:
- Improved social, cognitive and emotional skill-sets
- No requirement for special education in the subsequent school years
- Better grades and enhanced ability to focus and concentrate.
- Some researchers have even come to the conclusion that children who attend preschool generally don’t drop out of high school and develop the aptitude to continue higher education.
- Children also tend to have fewer behavioural and psychological issues after receiving training early in their life in a preschool.
