Preschool is every child’s first step towards independence and self-reliance. While it is a truly exciting and thrilling experience, it can also be challenging and overwhelming for children and parents alike.
Children begin to explore the world around them from the minute they are born. The experiences that children are exposed to in their early years are critical in shaping their attitude towards life, and helps them acquire and enhance valuable essential skills, because brain development is at its highest between the ages of 0 to 5 years old.
This is why it is important to give children the freedom to experience a wide range of activities and stimuli, and allow them to expand their mental and physical horizons as much as possible during the early formative years.
Exposure to activities that include arts & craft, language & literacy, gymnastics & music, and discovery programs that introduce children to the basic concepts of science and math are all extremely vital in helping children enhance their social, emotional, mental, cognitive and physical skills, and also give them an enormous amount of self-confidence as they enter the daunting and challenging world of Preschool.
