As a parent, the preschool you choose plays a pivotal role in ensuring your child meets and exceeds milestone goals during this critical phase of brain development. Preschoolers, typically between the ages of three and five years, have significant changes during this age span of accelerated cognitive, physical, emotional and linguistic development.
Preschools that emphasize brain development, such as Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academy of Snellville, realize there is a limited opportunity for essential brain cells to be activated before it is too late. An estimated 80 billion of the 100 billion total cells of a child's brain have the potential to be activated before their sixth birthday. By stimulating these brain cells at the appropriate time and solidifying the growth of vital cognitive pathways, children are able to maximize their mental capacity and establish an essential foundation for future academic and social success.
During these stages, your child will require a qualified teacher who encourages individual progress through a series of strategic learning experiences. Young children enjoy an enhanced learning environment though a hands-on approach via interactive lessons and classroom involvement. Our exclusive Brain Waves Curriculum is designed to meet preschoolers' developmental needs, providing them with encouragement, guidance, love, and support to achieve essential brain growth and a sense of mastery and self-confidence.
Some great tips on child development at home
While your child will be learning and developing through our individualized preschool curriculum, you can enhance this learning process by experimenting with a few things at home which help to enhance the process.
Assign your child household chores. Children with a sense of responsibility learn to plan and structure their time so tasks can be completed. This can include a daily clean-up of the toys they have used, or simply making their bed each morning. Both instill a good work ethic, but also teach them to be considerate of others within the household.
Storytelling encourages your child to ask questions and talk about the characters in the book. Through reading, children can learn to express their feelings, use their imagination, and learn to think ahead.
Singing nursery rhymes and participating in sing-a-longs aren't just meant to be fun, but also enhance the learning, memory, and storing of essential information.
Cooking, baking and following instructions from a recipe will assist your child with concentration, sequencing, measuring, and planning. They will also learn about the tasty rewards that come from accomplishing a job well done!
