Children learn many valuable lessons during their time in school. But before children can start taking advantage of these lessons, they need to understand their new surroundings and how to interact with teachers and peers. That is why Pre-K is so important!
Discover the importance of Pre-K education by watching this video. Pre-K teachers help children get familiar with the school environment. They also help create the foundation for developing a passion for learning. Both of these factors are important for children as they move on to higher grades.
If you want more information about the importance of Pre-K, contact the friendly staff here at A Child’s World. Call our Doylestown preschool at (267) 337-6456 to learn about our programs, curriculum, and advantages.
Summer is here, which means kids will be home from preschool and daycare! Children love spending time with friends during the summer, but it is also important to set up activities for children to enjoy at home when they are not with their friends. Make sure your child has a fun and active summer by trying these fun craft projects:
Give your child an opportunity to show off her creative side by helping her make a cool sign for her bedroom door. This sign can say anything, from her name to her favorite phrase! Use construction paper to create a sign or large letters. Decorate the paper with markers and use a ribbon to hang it on the door.
This season may be filled with sunshine, but it is also known to bring a few storms along with it! Make sure your child is prepared for summer showers by helping her decorate her own unique umbrella. Find a solid colored children’s umbrella, and use art supplies to add fun shapes, patterns, and designs.
Will your family be taking any vacations this summer? Your child can capture these memories by creating an awesome summer collage! Purchase a poster board, and give your child safety scissors, paste, and art supplies. Encourage your child to combine summer pictures with these supplies to make a beautiful and meaningful piece of art.
Wearing sunglasses is a great way to keep the sun’s rays away from the eyes during the warm season. Your child can use her free time to make her own superstar sunglasses! Find a simple pair of children’s sunglasses and fun materials such as beads and sequins. Help your child carefully attach the items to the sunglasses for a one-of-a-kind pair of shades.
These crafts are great projects during summer vacation from A Child’s World! Learn about our child care and daycare programs in Doylestown by visiting us online or giving us a call at (267) 337-6456.
These days, many expectant moms are placing headphones on their bellies so their unborn children can listen to Mozart. Studies have shown that exposure to music before birth carries benefits in several developmental areas. If your youngster is already in daycare or preschool, however, there’s no need to fret. Music education in preschool and other early childhood education programs can help your youngster reach his or her full potential.
Preschoolers are always busy learning new tasks, including grasping paintbrushes, turning pages in books, and manipulating buttons. All of those tasks rely on fine motor skills, which music education can help your preschooler develop. The same small muscle movements that help your youngster press keys on a piano will help him or her learn to write legibly. When your child learns to play an instrument, he or she builds a great foundation for academic success.
Children who are exposed to music at an early age are better equipped to recognize sound patterns before they can even speak. You shouldn’t stop at putting headphones on your pregnant belly; by enrolling your child in music education classes as a preschooler, you’re encouraging the development of the circuitry in the left brain, which is responsible for language processing. Look for a preschool or daycare center that actively integrates music into the curriculum.
Evidence suggests that musicians have more highly developed neural activity than non-musicians. In fact, children who learn to play an instrument tend to score higher on standardized tests. Music education can stimulate your child’s abstract thinking and reasoning skills. It also fosters a stronger working memory.
At A Child’s World in Doylestown, our educators embrace the power of music to stimulate children’s development. Learn more about the curriculum at our preschool and daycare center by calling us at (267) 337-6456. You could also visit our website to take a virtual tour.
