Why Preschool? ........................................
Updated: Mar 14
A child's early exposure to a quality preschool experience is essential in preparing the child for a positive school experience. Today, children entering kindergarten are expected to know more academically than ever before. Exposure to a quality preschool setting before the age of 5 increases a child's potential in many aspects (ex. high academic morale, motivation, employment, economics, family, etc.) of life.
Many studies, including the Perry School study (Barnett, et al, 2005) have shown children attending a school-like setting with a high-quality curriculum before the age of 5, have shown to adapt better to school after the age of 5 in comparison to their peers who did not attend a preschool setting.
Furthermore, the study highlighted to be reading for kindergarten, students are taught foundational reading, writing and social skills as early as Pre-K.
The Wee Care Childcare & Preschool curriculum is designed to foster early academic skills in children as early as 6 months old. Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all children at every stage of their development.
