A Well-Rounded Preschool
Preschool is an important developmental stage for children, where they build a strong foundation for academics and success. It is important that preschools include activities in each of these categories: (1) play, social, fun, coordination and (2) reading, writing, math, and academics. Only focusing on academic related material builds stress levels in kids, while only focusing on social activities leaves a learning gap so they may not feel prepared for kindergarten. Creative World School is a franchise that promotes balance between these activities and promotes an exploratory learning environment.
It is important to carefully research the day-to-day activities of a preschool or daycare center before enrolling your child. Below is an illustration of what you should look for in a well-rounded preschool:
