Why You Should Send Your Child to Preschool

You can search the internet and find many excellent articles on why your child should attend preschool which can provide you with plenty of helpful information. If you want to give your child the very best that you possibly can, you should look to have them attend preschool as soon as they can do so. By introducing them to this learning environment from a young age, there are benefits that your child could take into their adult years, creating great habits that can last a lifetime.

Choosing A Good School

If you use a search engine and look for “preschool near me“, you will see some different preschools showing in the results. When choosing a school for your child, the closeness is not the only issue that you should look at as you also want to see the standard of care that your child will receive. When you find a good preschool for your child, you can help to instil ethics and values into them that will see them become a valued and productive member of society.

Social Skills

Schools are not for just learning about facts and figures from books, as a big part of a child’s school life is also about learning how to interact with others socially. Being able to communicate with lots of different types of people is vital, and these skills can be taught from a young age when immersed in the correct surroundings. The more interaction with others that your child has, the better they will be able to communicate with others when they are older.


Although your child may be far too young for you to be considering them flying the nest, it is nonetheless important that they learn life skills that they will need when they grow older. Attending preschool eases a child into their academic lives, and encourages independence which allows your child to grow and flourish. Being able to dress, eat and take general care of themselves and others starts them on the path to being able to lead an independent life when they mature.

Nurture Their Appetite For Learning

When a child is put into an environment where they are constantly learning, you can ignite a hunger for knowledge that may lead them to academic excellence. A passion for learning new things and understanding them is something that is priceless, and should be encouraged in children as much as possible. Sparking their curiosity from a young afe can give them passion to learn that they will take with them into their adults lives, and as a consequence maybe something that is with them for the rest of their lives.

Staying Active

A big part of preschool is not just the academic learning, as playtime is equally as important. A good school will encourage a variety of physical exercises that are both healthy for the children, as well as fun to play. If you want your child to remain healthy, then it is important that you teach them to exercise every day and have a good time while they do it.

If you want to give your child the best start in life that you can, make sure that you send them to a quality preschool as soon as they are ready, and give them the building blocks that they need for a happy and productive life.

    Preschool was such a blessing for my 3rd daughter – she was super shy before hand and we were really concerned how she would react if she went straight to school. We needn’t have worried – she’ so outgoing now!

    I agree with all the points you made. While I’m a clingy mom, I definitely see the educational and social value of preschool.

      I too am a clingy mom but I think it’s a great experience for them to attend preschool.

    This is a great post! I agree it is quite importante to send your kids to pre school. Just to make them understand that home and their parents isn’t the boundaries of the world. It is also great for independence and socializing early! xx corinne

    I loved preschool when I was little! I’m sure my mom loved the break too. 😉 It definitely made some of my first memories clearer too, because we learned something new pretty much every day!

    This is definitely an interesting read – despite the fact that our schooling system is quite different, and I’m not a mother! It is really interesting being able to get a glimpse into how different education is around the world. Definitely a well written piece!

      We expect the education system to be very similar no matter where we are, but I’m always surprised with how different it is.

    Thank you for the great article, especially when there are so many who suggest the opposite. My oldest went to preschool and my youngest stays home with Dad. While I try not to compare the two I feel like the oldest had an advantage by being able to develop her social skills at such an early age.

      I think being at a preschool definitely helps with their social skills. My daughter was so shy and quiet but now she’s come out of her shell.

    I didn’t send my children to preschool. There was always a waiting list here in Brooklyn, NYC but, I wish they had gone. I think it’s important for kids to interact with other children in a learning environment as early as possible.

    I will not send my child to preschool because of the academic pressure. Preschools are becoming more structured and stressful for children! You alluded to research about the benefits of preschool, but I’ve never actually seen how this research applies to my demographic. Children who don’t speak English at home, or who don’t have access to books definitely benefit from preschool! But I am certain that I can better meet my children’s learning, social, and emotional skills at home.

      It really is an each-to-their-own topic, as is all aspects of parenting. I find preschool works well for me and my children.

    I couldn’t agree with this more. It definitely helps prep them even if its for a couple of hours a day.

    My kids went to preschool and it was a critical part of their early social development. I would recommend it too

    But if you want your child to explore at school, if you want your child to be in a beautiful, harmonious environment where the child’s interests and needs are at the center, come to Montessori.
