Watch the Video – What your children will learn in Preschool
I have two grandchildren aged three and six who attend preschool. Their communication skills and creative skills are just unbelievable. Whenever I visit them they are sitting at the table with big smiles on their faces scribbling or writing on worksheets. My granddaughter has a gift for telling stories and has a vivid imagination, she is very descriptive and very entertaining.
I feel reassured that what looks like scribbling or drawing to us as adults, is actually part of their mental and emotional growth. It is laying a solid foundation for their self-esteem, learning skills, creativity and communication skills. I am confident that my grandchildren will grow into well-rounded individuals. All the life skills they are learning now at preschool will make them very successful individuals in their chosen career paths.
