Early Childhood Education is an umbrella term that encompasses learning and developmental theories and teaching strategies for children from birth to the age of 8. Early Childhood education is a constantly changing and robust field of study and practice. One of the most well established facts coming out of the studies involving early childhood education is that toddler and preschool age children benefit both academically and socially from preschool and other education oriented day care programs.
Preschool and Early Childhood Education
Preschool is a great transitional milestone for both children and parents. As a parent, it is perhaps the first time that you have willingly surrendered your child over to a near total stranger for any significant period of time. Naturally, that in itself can produce a good deal of anxiety. To reduce this added stress, it is important that parents get to know their childcare providers.
For children, the preschool experience is actually slightly less traumatic. The world of a child is a world of wonder and new experiences. The preschool environment is just a new chapter in their day to day adventures. That is not to say that all children adjust perfectly. The most common issue children entering preschool face is separation anxiety. You can help your little one through this with these fantastic and easy tips
Preschool is the transition between structured and unstructured learning. It is the pathway to kindergarten and grade school and, later on, college and adulthood. As toddlers and infants, the primary learning environment for children is the home and family. It is here that the little scholars take their first steps, speak their first words, make their first mistakes and learn from all of it. It is a precious time for parents, often thoroughly documented in photo and video!
Benefits of Preschool and Early Childhood Education
Children fortunate enough to be enrolled in preschool or other early childhood education programs have an easier
time adapting to kindergarten. Long term studies show that preschool students actually end up earning more money, are less likely to need remedial or special education programs, are less likely to have behavior issues and have higher earnings later in life than children who did not attend a preschool or early childhood education program.
Children in early childhood education programs benefit significantly from the excellent socialization environment that is provided in these programs. Children learn to play, work with and learn in social groups, which teaches them concepts like turn taking, sharing and develops their sense of empathy and compassion for others.
These benefits prepare the little scholar of an early childhood education programs for learning in kindergarten and beyond!
