Going to Pre School is "A tiny step towards a gigantic presence in a child's life".

This is the first exercise in which children are isolated from the warmth and safe environment of their parents. It must therefore be a place that is the second home of the child; a place that has enough material to attract and make the child feel relaxed and safe.

This is the first position where the child develops his or her self-esteem. A child learns the value of his own name, things, and friends. Each child learns to communicate with his or her teachers and fellow students at the Pre-School. It is the best place to build the child's framework for future success. The skills and awareness that the child learns in Pre-School have a significant influence on the child's aptitude and attitude later in life.

Research on pre-school education has shown that children taught at an early age typically have stronger social skills, fewer behavioral issues, and higher grades without special treatment. Self-confidence gained from learning in a playful manner leads to the growth of the child's personality.

The positive learning attitude of the child, the basic foundation in language, comprehension, and management, helps the teacher promote the child's learning at kindergarten and higher education levels.

Children's education specialists also say that young children learn best when they have the opportunity to interact with their peers, and their parents and instructors treat them kindly. They bloom well in a tension-free setting. Besides, they understand and learn things better if they are introduced to new things in small portions.

Salient Features Of A Pre School

 

  •   A good introduction to learning
  •  Teaching in a fun-filled way to practice the process
  •  To place children on the road to lifelong learning
  •  Higher language and mathematical skills growth.
  •  A perfect platform for improving social skills.
  •  Exposure to enhance communication skills.

Learning Goals In The Pre-School

 

  • Children learn a lot in preschool. Focus is given on the cognitive growth of the infant as learning is due to practice and interaction in a large group. Social contact is the second most critical component of pre-school education.
  • Children learn to communicate with children of their own age in a controlled environment. Playing with clay, carrying pencils, practicing free coloring, and writing on board helps children improve their motor skills. Both fine motor and gross motor learning exercises are carried out in the classroom under the guidance of qualified teachers.
  • The child shall be prepared for the curriculum of the standardized schools.
  • They learn to recognize their things as their own pack, tiffin, napkin, and a bottle of water. These are the real jewels of the children of this generation.
  • Children participate in oral activities such as recitation of poems, storytelling, role-playing, singing songs, hymns, and prayers. Both of these exercises help to develop their oratory skills. They’re learning to talk in groups. They also develop faith to speak in front of small groups. Repeated recitations of poems and stories on stage
  • Children get toilet trained.
  • Time management is another critical aspect of pre-school. Children practice assembly time, circle time, playtime, typhoid time, storytime, and fun time.
  • Phonological comprehension – is the most critical feature in pre-school education. Children know how to recognize the sounds of the alphabet. By listening to the sound, they learn to recognize the alphabet.
  • Pre-writing skills developed by the use of pencil coloring and free-style writing on the blackboard.

Basic Essential Facilities Provided By The Pre-School

 

  •   A safe and hygienic climate.
  •  Trained soft-speaking teachers.
  •  Semi-trained helpers.
  •  Colorful classrooms.
  •  Plenty of toys, bicycles, and building block games.
  •  The rest corner of the classroom.
  •  Black or green boards.
  •  sand pool.
  •  Playground.
  •  Flashcards for recognition of names, species, vegetables, and colors.
  •  Close proximity to your house.
  •  Decent and safe transport services.
  •  Good and clean bathrooms.
  •  Clean, filtered drinking water.
  •  Limited working hours (working not more than 5 days a week and not more than 3 to 4 hours a day).

One of the most significant cognitive changes in preschool years between three and four-year-olds in the development of abstract thought. Symbolic thinking is the ability to psychologically or symbolically represent real things, acts, and events. The most noticeable indication of the growth of symbolic thought in two-to three-year-olds is the substantial increase in the use of the miniature type of things around them, bringing them into a world of imagination that becomes more complex as they grow. "You like my train, huh?”Sonu wonders how he's going to run around his classroom in his car. 'This is going really quickly. It's going to take me to the zoo.

It is therefore of great importance for Pre-Schools to have a lot to draw the interest of their students. And role-play is very important in playschool.

According to the National Institute of Early Education Research (NIEER), children who attend a good pre-school have better pre-reading, math, and science skills than those who did not attend pre-school.

Pre-school education is a time-consuming need because most parents work and do not have enough time to spend with their children. Most babies are left at home with grandparents or helpers who are unable to direct them in the way they should be.

Thus, Pre School is not a place to search for dominance of academic curriculum, but it is a place where children do all sorts of things that appeal to them and teach them in a specific way.

Preschool education supports the child's mental, social, and personal growth and development. While a child learns how to speak while at home, constant contact and familiarity with children of the same age group and teachers help them develop their communication skills. This involves the translation of mental images into languages so that thoughts and ideas can be translated into facts.

Preschool benefits


Pre-school education has many possible benefits. While this is not an exhaustive list, there are some of the main ones below. Bear in mind, however, that such advantages can vary between preschool programs.

  •  Early learning: there are many well-known advantages of early childhood education, including the fostering of a love of learning.
  •  Teachers: Teachers prefer to provide early childhood education. They can also lead a young learner well, bringing out their true potential.
  •  Social interaction: Your child will have a fair chance of interacting with children of different ages. This is going to help them learn, grow, and mature.
  •   Activities: children should be exposed to a wide range of events, including arts, music, dance, and sports.
  •  Structure: a daily routine should make it possible for children to succeed.
  •  High School admissions: Preschools will help your child get to elementary school. Many elementary schools /high schools look favorably to pre-school-educated   students.
  •  Faster transitions: early exposure to regular routine ensures a smoother transition to formal schooling later.
  •  Test run: Pre-school can be the perfect way to try out private school.
  •  Safety: Many preschools are safe and closely supervised places to learn.
  •  Regulation: Preschool must be approved and governed by the provincial government.


Early learning is a special preschool advantage. In the right program, your child should learn a lot of academic and pre-academic skills. This might give them a leg when they start school. Your child will learn a wide range of cognitive, social, and linguistic skills in most preschools. The main ones are listed below.

Skills Learn
Cognitive and academics:

  •  Writing and reading;
  •  Numbering: numbers and some simple arithmetic, such as additions, puzzles, matching, sorting
  •  Science: plant, climate, body parts, season, etc.
  •  Play and discovery learning: playing, discovering, and describing the environment;

Social and emotional

  •  Collaboration
  •  Freedom and self-reliance

In short, a good preschool program can provide a range of short-and long-term benefits, including social, academic, and economic benefits. That said, preschool is not a guarantee of success or happiness. Many other variables come into play, including the family atmosphere, education, financial capital, and community support. There is strong evidence, however, that preschool has important benefits for children and some of these benefits can be long-lasting.
