Why is preschool education so important?

Social and emotional development – children have to learn to be respectful of others in the nursery environment and they have to be able to problem-solve. The nursery provides a setting where children can explore and gain a sense of self that builds self-confidence through guided development. Children can carry out tasks and make their own decisions without their parents.

School readiness – in preschool, children learn many of the skills they will need in school; how to take turns, how to be patient and how to share the attention of the teacher or nursery worker with other children. One of the key skills that children develop is to be able to follow directions. Quality preschools and nurseries help children find answers through conversation, experimentation and exploration which can all be done through the medium of play, engagement and interactivity with other children. One of the biggest advantages of preschool, of course, is that children learn to be separate and away from their parents or carer developing a sense of autonomy that is crucial for grade school years.

Language and cognitive skills – children’s language skills are nurtured and developed with new vocabulary introduced during play tasks and activities. Language is also developed through the key tool of storytelling and singing.

Maths and literacy – children are taught numbers and letters but in a way that is both palatable and appealing to their age mostly by means of storytelling, matching games, counting games, puzzles and songs.
