Does Daycare Prepare My Child For School?

Another summer has flown by, and now it’s time to look forward to the fall.

Back-to-school savings are front and center in grocery stores and first-day of school photos are flooding every social media page. Even if you don’t have school-aged children yet, the back-to-school season gets every parent thinking: how can I best prepare my child for school?

One of the best ways to prepare your child for school is by enrolling them in a quality daycare or preschool program. This is true for every aged child, even infants! Just ways daycare or preschool prepares your child for school include:

  • Social Skills – Children need lots of practice making friends, problem-solving, and being respectful to their teachers. Daycare and preschool give your child ample opportunity to practice these skills, which makes the transition to school easier. Your child will quickly make friends and interact with their teacher.
  • Routine – Schools have a very strict routine. Children who are used to doing whatever they want whenever they want to do it have a hard time transitioning to school. Daycare and preschool routines help your child thrive in a school routine.
  • Academic Acceleration – In our quality daycare and preschool programs, we teach letters, numbers, shapes, colors, opposites, and so much more! Your child will be ahead of the curve when they walk into their first day of kindergarten.

Even though the school year is starting, it’s never too late to enroll your child in a daycare or preschool program! We accept applicants at any time of the year. But don’t wait–apply today!
