Q

What are the benefits of letting my kid/s join the Preschool Prep program?

A

Letting your kids attend can give them a myriad of benefits, compared to children who are held back and had to wait until they’re older. Benefits can include but are not limited to:

• fosters a love for learning in your children, at an early age

• academic advantage as it prepares your kids for formal schooling, boosting pre-math and literacy skills

• develops their social skills as they will interact with peers from different backgrounds and with adults (teachers) as well

• enhances their cognitive and emotional skills as they learn self-control, how to share, follow instructions and more.

• their sense of competence and confidence is heightened, as they learn how to take of themselves (eg. washing their hands, feeding themselves) and how to help others.

• gross motor and fine motor skills are also greatly improved, areas which might not be given focus and priority when kids are staying at home

Currently, we do not provide any transportation service because one, of a low demand for such a service and two, hiring an external transportation company might create some safety concerns, as we won’t be able to monitor your children.
