WHY PRESCHOOL IS GOOD FOR CHILDREN

  • Preschool is an opportunity for growth
  • Preschool prepares children for kindergarten
  • Preschool promotes social & emotional development
  • Preschool promotes language & cognitive skills
  • Preschool teachers nurture a child's curiosity
  • Preschool helps develop motor skills

There are approximately 2000 Days between birth and the first day of kindergarten. The first 2000 Days of a child's life can have a profound and lifelong impact on physical and emotional well-being, readiness to learn and succeed, and ability to become a productive citizen.
