The Importance of Preschool

The first five years in a child’s life are crucial for learning. Since children are born, they are constantly learning every day. Recognizing their family, their surroundings, and experiencing their first emotions, are the first things they learn at home. The first five years of our lives are full of discoveries, and with a curious and energetic attitude, it’s no wonder kids are really fast learners. Because of this, preschool years are one of the most important years in a children’s life. Finally, while children learn through playing, they develop important skills that will prepare them for the world. At Tiniciti Preschool, we are deeply committed in providing a multidisciplinary, nurturing, and fun learning experience for your kids.

Development of Emotional & Social Skills

A nurturing environment helps a child feel safe and secure, this is crucial for successful learning. Being away from their parents teaches them how to interact with adults and fellow children outside the family, which is vital to introduce them to society. In preschool, they develop their emotional and social skills daily, understanding their feelings as well as learning how to interact with others. By following instructions, cooperating with their classmates, and waiting for turns, your child learns how to form friendships, how to respect others, and most importantly, respect themselves.

Providing kids with an environment rich with language ensures that their vocabulary will grow greatly. This helps them form longer sentences that are more complex. By asking questions that encourage thinking, kids are inspired to develop their language and cognitive skills. Supported by activities that challenge them to test their ideas, pay attention, and ask questions when they don’t understand, and look for solutions prepares them to use their creativity, cognitive and language skills to develop their personality and intelligence.
