Advantages of early education at kindergarten level
December 31 1969
Childhood experts agree that attaining a quality early education can help prepare children for kindergarten and the following years of formal education. “There is increasing evidence that children gain a lot from going to preschool,” says Parents advisor Kathleen McCartney, PhD, Dean of Harvard Graduate School of Education. It is at preschool that children will learn how to socialize and get along with other children.
According to the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER), more than 40% of three-year olds and over two thirds of four-year olds were enrolled in a preschool in 2005. Quality kindergarten curricula that are well-designed and well-executed have proven to produce long-term improvements in school success. These improvements include higher achievement test scores with lower rates of grade repetition and special education.
Kindergarten and its lasting effects
The first five years of your child’s life are a critical time. This is when the brain is developing and the brain cells are forming connections for learning and future success in school. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, we have always adopted the philosophy of a “Hug First, Then Teach”, since we know that a safe and secure emotional attachment is vital for the growth and full development of your child’s brain.
Our private kindergarten classrooms are filled with stimulating materials that enable your child to explore through sound, sight, taste, touch and smell. These sensory experiences send information directly to the brain, forming the platform for healthy brain growth. And of course, our teachers are there beside your child to facilitate these explorations.
At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academies, we believe in a nurturing learning environment with hands-on play and novel experiences that will ignite your child’s curiosity. This is why our kindergarten curriculum is centered on stimulating learning experiences.
