Between birth and the age of three, a child's brain increases 80% to its human adult size. Children soak up information from stimuli around them like sponges. Think about all they learn naturally and from observation in their environments: learning to talk, walk, eat and dress themselves.
So, consider those years between two and five when a child enters kindergarten. Why not encourage the sponge, or the brain, to continue to learn and absorb information in a fun positive way? Studies show that children who attended an academic oriented preschool versus a less academic oriented one did better in kindergarten. Instead of drawing a square or saying a square has four sides, these children also describe the square as having four right angles. Their vocabulary and verbal understanding is accelerated compared to their peers who only played with blocks, dressed up or watched television.
The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has been working these past 60 years to promote high quality early childhood programs for all young children and their families. Based on scientific research, the NAEYC provides guideposts of what children should know and be able to do at various age ranges.
The Learning Box Preschool Curriculum follows NAEYC standards. Teachers and parents who home school can order different boxes of preschool curriculum that have preplanned activities and learning lessons each month. All materials have been developed by experienced educators who have worked with young children. The lessons are affordable, easy to use and most important, fun and creative experiences for you and your preschool student.
There are boxes for children age 2 to 4 with either five or three day learning programs. Most lesson boxes include all the necessary materials and provide a calendar for organization and time management.
So when considering your preschoolers education, remember an early start benefits their growth and learning abilities. Learning Box Preschool can help!
