Why kindergarten attendance is an important part of your child’s formative years

June 09 2014

The role that kindergarten can play in your child’s early life is a positive and beneficial one. The time your child spends in kindergarten will be, for the most part, the first time he will have daily interaction with his peers, and learn to socialize with both peers and adults outside of the home. Kindergarten is also a learning environment where your child will be exposed to many different concepts that will form the base for future learning. At Kids 'R' Kids, we believe that if your child is happy, loved and feels connected, he will learn more and will maximize his development.  

The history and role of kindergarten 

Kindergarten is a German word which means children’s garden. The first kindergartens were created in the late eighteenth century in Bavaria and Strasbourg to care for children whose parents worked outside of the home.  This is the main purpose of modern day care. This idea has expanded with the advent of preschool education, which provides more than just daycare. Preschool generally includes such activities as purposeful play, song and dance, art, and social interaction to help begin the transition from home to school.

At Kids ‘R’ Kids, our preschool education is a professional, accredited program that has the highest standards to provide your child with the best in early childhood education. Our team of dedicated, passionate and skilled teachers believes in our “Hug First, Then Teach” philosophy, ensuring your child will feel safe and comfortable so he will be open to new knowledge.
