Impact of Early Year Education – Pathway to Child’s Future

  • 23 March 2022

Why is early childhood education so important for our little ones?

It’s a common misperception that early childhood education is only about learning basic skills. This is a time when children learn critical social and emotional skills and a partnership is formed between the child, their parents, and the teacher. When this is done successfully, it lays the groundwork for it to continue throughout the child’s education.

A large part of critical brain development in children happens before they even start kindergarten. It impacts everything from school performance to lifelong social skills.

I feel,Early childhood development programs are an investment in your child’s future, not a cost. In this blog you will undertand how it impacts our children and maps the pathway for the bright future.

Impact of Early Year education:

Social Skill

In preschool programs, children learn how to interact with their classmates, teachers, and parents. They also start to discover interests that they hold for a lifetime. Play is a critical component of learning the social skills necessary to take children through life.

Life Skill

Children will learn to express their emotions, like happiness, sadness, and anger. They will also work on how to cope with their feelings. With numerous children and only a few teachers, they will naturally learn to take turns with others. Circle time is also an excellent structured time for listening and taking turns.

Better Academic Performance

Data shows that children who participate in early childhood education perform better when they get to K-12 school. A Harvard study revealed that early childhood education leads to a lower chance of special education placement. It also increases the likelihood of graduating from high school.

Love of Lifelong Learning

In preschool, children’s lessons are presented as fun games and activities. They get to discover all these new things about the world they’re living in. There is also exciting music, art, and toys they don’t have access to at home. These early exposures inspire children to want to know more. They develop a passion for knowledge that will last them a lifetime.

Improved Confidence

When children attend preschool programs, they experience tons of positive reinforcement. They also have positive interactions with their teachers and their classmates making them confident individuals.

Better Attention Span

Attention spans are a challenging issue for many parents, especially while living in the digital age. Children need the help of their parents and their teachers to help them work on concentrating. Early childhood education programs work on attention spans as part of their learning process. In preschool, children start understanding when it’s time to work and when it’s time to play.

One of the marvelous things about early childhood education is it’s a designated time for learning when your child is not on screens.

Emphasize curiosity

In early childhood education, we emphasize curiosity. Teachers encourage children to ask critical questions like “why,” “what,” and “how.”

Staying Active and Healthy

When children attend a school that emphasizes physical activity, they get to learn and stay active simultaneously. Your kids will have access to a structured outdoor time where they can play on the playground or run around and explore nature. Whether your child is engaging in sports or playing tag with other children, the important thing is they’re getting up and moving. Getting into the habit of being active at an early age is key to building healthy lifelong habits.

Boosts Creativity

Making music, clapping, dancing, and other fun activities can help develop children’s fine motor skills. Singing songs can build brain and body coordination. The skills that children learn while participating in music contribute to the child’s overall brain development. Kids love to paint, make arts and crafts, and get messy.
