What will my child learn?
Although your kid will certainly do things like paint and sit in a circle for storytime, she'll also get practice in sharing, cooperating, resolving conflicts, and being independent. These social and emotional skills will help prepare her for kindergarten and life in general. In fact, according to a study of kindergarten teachers, 95 percent said that children who had attended preschool were better prepared socially and academically. Without looking at school records, they could tell which kids had been to preschool by the way they played with their peers, behaved in the classroom, and performed with pre-reading skills and math concepts.
