Many parents choose to leave their jobs to stay at home with their children. From the rising cost of daycare to having a fear of others caring for your child, the reasons behind becoming a stay at home parent are easy to see. While you most likely capable of providing excellent care and teaching your child, early education is also important. With this guide, you will understand the benefits of enrolling your child into preschool, even though you are a stay at home parent.
If you are like most stay at home parents, you will help your child complete basic tasks each day because you feel it is your job. While there is nothing wrong with this, your child will eventually need to learn to do certain things on their own. Thankfully, enrolling your child into a preschool program, even for just half of the day, will help your child gain this much-needed independence.
In an early education program, your child will learn how to clear their desk, clean up supplies, put on their jacket and shoes, turn in classwork, and assist teachers and classmates.
Unless you have other children, visit the park, or participate in regular playdates, your child is most likely not socializing enough.
Learning how to make friends, share, and work with others in a classroom and play setting will benefit your child. Not only will they live a happier life, but they will also be able to work well with others as they grow into their later childhood, teen, and adult years.
Preschool also allows your child to socialize with others who are in the same age group. In addition, your child will be able to meet and befriend children of different genders, religions, and races. This diversity will help your child grow into a more friendly, compassionate, and cultured adult.
Gaining independence and the ability to socialize with others are important benefits of early education, but attending preschool will also increase their chance of success through their future educational career.
Recent studies have shown preschool acts as an education stepping stone, improving a child's brain structure, building a desire to learn, and developing reading, writing, and math skills that will follow them throughout their lives.
As a stay at home parent, you may think your child is receiving enough love, support, and education. However, organized education early on in your child's life offers enormous benefits. This guide will help you understand the importance of preschool for your child.
