One of the most important parts of a preschool in Gilbert is the importance of play.
Learning through Play: The Sign of a Good Gilbert Daycare Center
As we covered previously, early childhood education also equips your child with the skills to fend off childhood depression. One of the causes of childhood depression is social withdrawal brought about by insufficient social interactions, which results from lack of socialization during the early stages of childhood development.
In the daycare center, your child will have an opportunity to interact with other children, and this will allow him or her to be less frightened, and be at ease, in familiar surroundings. This form of peer interaction equips your child with the skills necessary to deal with hostile peers later in life, and this drastically reduces the chance of your child becoming depressed.
Curiosity and imagination usually evokes the learning instinct in toddlers. Because the toddlers have not yet acquired proper reading and writing skills, they can only learn best through play. This is why learning through play is the primary focus of early childhood education. According to educationist and philosopher, Jean Piaget, learning through play meets the emotional, physical, social, language, and intellectual needs of your child. It also allows your child to freely express his or her imagination, as well as explore the limits of his or her curiosities. Therefore, your child acquires knowledge and skills more rapidly if he or she engages in dramatic play, social games, and art activities. This also allows your child to express their talents very early in life.
Neurodevelopment and Successful Adult Life
Additionally, learning through play allows your child to develop their neuro-coordination skills, and this plays a key role in the development of both gross motor skills and fine motor skills. Proper neurological development also allows your child to quickly develop cognitive skills. This explains why children who had early childhood education tend to perform better than their peers in high school and college. Better academic achievement also increased their chances of finding a better paying job later in life. Therefore, early childhood education lays the groundwork for a future successful (adult) life for your child.
