Deciding whether or not to enrol your child in a playgroup is a decision that every parent has to make at the required time. However, as is the trend today, most parents choose the alternative of keeping and teaching their children from the comfort of their own home.
As good as this will probably sound, here are a few ways by which your child will benefit by attending a preschool in Singapore when compared to having them home-schooled during this particular time.
Promotes listening and talking skills
It is proven that a child between the ages of three and five is exposed to a comparatively vaster interest in building up his or her vocabulary in order to be better understood; as is a child’s nature. By enrolling your child in a preschool of your choice, you will generally be allowing your child to be exposed to an environment where his or her listening and responsive skills, as well as their overall communication skills are greatly improved.
Learning within a home environment exposes a child to much less than he or she will probably be presented with if he or she is in a class full of children of their age. They are more likely to catch onto and use the skills that are being moulded within the classroom and make it a point to implement them into their everyday life.
Teachers are able to satisfy a child’s curiosity
Sometimes as parents, especially working parents, who are doing their utmost to keep things afloat, there is a possibility that you have a lot less time to spend with your child to feed his or her hunger for knowledge at that age.
Enrolling them in such a classroom will leave them open to asking the questions that they want answered from the teacher on charge and she will know exactly how to answer od deal with questions that typical children will ask.
Develops motor skills
Since children are encouraged to take part in sports of some kind and other added activities, it is proven that a child is able to improve their motor skills to an astonishing level when compared with individuals who prefer home schooling their kids around this time.
Develops a child’s ability to work as a part of a team
It also encourages them to work together as part of a team. This results in the children learning to talk, listen, make a decision and compromise and work as part of a team toward a common goal.
