Many parents may be wondering if they really need to put their kids in nursery school. A lot of people think it is fine to put their children in school at the age of five for kindergarten. The immeasurable value of early education cannot be underestimated. Many parents may consider daycare over early education. The thing is that a fair number of preschools are also certified daycares, so you can still work and pick up your children afterwards. Let’s explore other important facets of nursery school that you may not be aware of.

The Importance of Early Education

While a lot of people may be quick to write off the importance of what you learn between the ages of three and five, recent studies suggest that preschool is very important. In these settings, children are exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes for the first time. They also begin to learn the names of colors and animals. Perhaps the most important facet of early education is the simple social interaction with other children. It is key that children learn how to get along with others and contribute to the whole in a meaningful manner, which they learn in an early education setting. The National Institute for Early Education Research did a study and found that nearly 40 percent of three year-olds and upwards of 66 percent of four year-olds were enrolled in early education programs. Their study also concluded that children who attended such programs entered kindergarten with better reading, basic math, and vocabulary skills. These programs sound pretty good, don’t they?

Choosing the Right Nursery School for Your Child

This requires a fair amount of research on your part. First, you must determine what program works best for your schedule. Generally, schedules range from full-time, half-days, or two to three days a week. If you work longer hours, you can find an option that also supplies daycare. Secondly, consider the location. You may choose between proximity to your home or work. Either way, these are logistical issues that you must consider. Perhaps the most important question to tackle is what kind of institution do you want to send your child to? There are programs in state schools, churches, private organizations, parent’s coalitions, and daycare centers. What values do you want instilled in your children? Make sure that the nursery school you send your kids aligns with your own values.

Early education is more than just a place to offload your kids while you go to work. The research is clear that children who start education earlier tend to be better students and have more basic skills. Education is the single most important gift you can provide for a child.
