Physical activity is not only important for your child's health - it will help them cope with the sheer physicality of interacting with twenty children on the playground. Bumps and shoves are inevitable, so make sure your child has lots of physical play to develop gross motor skills too. Your attitude towards starting school will greatly influence that of your child. If you are enthusiastic and excited about school, your child will be to. Regardless of your experiences at school, it is vital that you be positive and teach your child that learning is important - and it can be fun!
Preschools are expected to increase their fees as a result of the budget cuts, or compensate by hiring less-qualified staff. Increased fees are likely to put preschool out of reach for many parents. Less qualified staff means that your preschooler's education suffers - you are paying for a babysitting service rather than an education.
A good parenting must consider the understanding about the preschool period of child. According to studies, preschool period of child's life cycle is vital to convey awareness. In every country, children often start school when they are just three years old and spend two years in the preschool or kindergarten section of the school before they start Year 1 - first grade - at the age of five or six. When it comes to learning, parents can help with number awareness - being able to recite from one to 10 is not the same as understanding the value and place of numbers. Talk to your child about quantities, for example, five is bigger than two. Concentrate on counting; playing dominoes and simple board games, such as Snakes and Ladders, will teach children how to count while making it fun.
I'm not saying that if you don't train your child during these early years will totally be a failure. No child is born a genius, and none is born a fool. Other children have inherited skills and talents from their parents that contribute to their confidence as they grow up. Others too who were not pre-schooled can learn things easily. But there's a big difference in stimulating the child's brain during their early years than not at all.
With the new school year starting soon, many parents will be concerned about school readiness and looking for ways to help their children prepare for big school. While there are many preschool worksheets available, some are more useful than others in terms of versatility. There is a lot more to school readiness that just knowing the alphabet and counting to ten.
Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include counting to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pencil or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic math concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be starting to read three and four-letter words.
