Top Reasons Why You Should Enroll Your Child in a Preschool Program

Ask any parent and they will tell you that determining the appropriate time to send your little one off to school can feel stressful, confusing, and scary. But it doesn’t have to be! The right preschool program can do wonders for your child in a myriad of different ways. At Rosewood Academy, we help students build a solid foundation for a lifetime of success both inside and out of the classroom. After careful consideration, we’ve come up with our list of the top reasons why your son or daughter would thrive in a preschool program. Read on to learn more!

Socialization – For many 3-4 year olds, going to preschool will be the first time they are spending a consistent amount of time interacting with their peers. This experience is vital in terms of fostering social skills, teaching kids how to be patient and wait for their turn, how to listen to instructions, and how to work with each other and interact with new personalities. The diversity of the classroom allows children of different cultures, backgrounds, and interests to learn about each other and work together.

Creativity – With fun-filled arts and crafts projects, music lessons, story time, reading sessions and more, children are given a chance to express themselves, learn more about their interests, play make believe, and put their imaginations to good use. Since this is a time of great curiosity, a preschool classroom serves as the perfect backdrop for children to explore new things, take part in group play, and have fun in a controlled and safe environment.

Independence – When you send your children to preschool, they will be forced to learn how to get along by themselves and will have to find a way to communicate with their teachers and their peers if they want something. A preschool program can help students become less dependent on their parents since they will have to learn how to make do on their own when it comes to certain tasks. Learning how to be independent is a vital skill that will carry over into kindergarten and beyond.

At Rosewood Academy, we champion socialization, creativity, and independence but also offer a few additional benefits that set us apart from the rest. For one, we offer an early learning experience that is actually an amalgam of traditional and Montessori teaching methods, allowing students to develop their unique learning styles and experience the best of both worlds at the same time. As part of this comprehensive educational experience, we also offer a dedicated Montessori lab that allows students to really hone in on and develop their academic skills.

In order to enhance the learning experience, we have a dedicated physical education coach on staff who incorporates various components of our curriculum into activities that help stimulate young minds, promote mental and physical wellbeing, and encourage socialization as well.
