How Important is Pre-School Attendance? Little White House Learning Center of Milford

The pre-school years are unquestionably the most productive of a child’s early education. Learn more.

The pre-school years are unquestionably the most productive of a child’s early education. I am reminded of a quote by Maria Montessori, “The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” creator of the Montoessori Method

“The long term effects of early education on a child’s social and emotional development may be the most important outcome of a high-quality preschool education. Make sure your child receives all the benefits that preschool has to offer:

  • Committing to having your child attend pre-school every day on time.
  • If your child is reluctant to come to school, be sure to communicate this to the teacher. Together, you can make plans to address the concerns of your child.
  • Make sure your child has a daily predictable routine, including a routine for bedtime and waking up in the morning.
  • Be sure to allow enough time for the routines so that you and your child do not feel rushed.
  • Have your child get a good night’s rest to make sure he/she has enough energy to participate in classroom activities.
  • When talking with your child, be positive about preschool and the school staff. Cultivate your child’s interest in discovering new things and his or her love of learning
  • Remember, by bringing your child to preschool every day, you are helping to ensure that he or she will live up to their full potential and become a successful lifelong learner.
