One wonderful benefit of a daycare or preschool program is social skills. Children are surrounded by peers their age who think, talk, and play differently than them. They get exposed to new ideas, play in new ways, problem solve, incorporate everyone, and so much more.
But one benefit of daycare and preschool that isn’t talked about as much is the importance of role models.
Children need a variety of role models in their life to grow into well-rounded adults. So often, children are only exposed in a meaningful way to a few adults, such as parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, teachers, or perhaps a neighbor or other influential figure. However, children benefit from a diversity of adult role models to shape their experiences, learning, and thinking.
Our daycare and preschool programs offer this opportunity! When children learn to trust and respect their classroom teachers, they develop positive relationships with adults. This will benefit them their whole lives as they encounter many teachers who will help them learn and grow.
When children trust and respect their teacher, they learn to ask thoughtful questions, develop meaningful relationships, and how teachers can help them achieve their goals and dreams. They are inspired to try new things, encouraged to persevere, and cheered on when they succeed!
Luckily, we have some wonderful, creative, and caring teachers at Children’s Academy Childcare and Preschool! Your child will receive excellent, quality care in our daycare or preschool program.
