Governments around the world are cutting education (and other) budgets. This affects preschoolers more than any other sector, as preschool is generally not considered part of the formal statutory schooling system. You may find yourself having to educate your child. With printable worksheets, this is not as difficult as it may sound. 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.
Quality vs Quantity. Some free worksheets are not good quality – the pictures are fuzzy, backgrounds print grey or speckled – and children tend to notice these things. If you are using the worksheets to educate your child, you may want to choose good quality worksheets that encourage your child to produce good quality work. After all, it’s a little difficult to ask your child to color within the lines and work neatly when the worksheet they are filling in hasn’t done the same.
