Why Preschool Education is Very Important

Preschool Education A..Header.png

Preschool education is very important as it lays the foundation for all that is to come in a child’s educational development. Researches have established that the human brain develops the vast majority of its neurons, and it’s most receptive to learning, between birth and three years of age. In fact, the intake of new information is critical to the formation of active neural pathways (Shonkoff & Phillips, 2000).

Though the learning capabilities of humans continue for the rest of their lives, the intensity demonstrated in the preschool years cannot be sustained at higher age. Thus, children need positive early learning experiences to help their intellectual, social and emotional development for later school success. Briefly discussed below are some reasons why Preschool education is considered important:

  • Preschool education promotes language and cognitive skills

Through playing rhyming games and storytelling techniques, preschool teachers skillfully develop children’s linguistic and cognitive abilities.

  • It helps develop motor skills

Having good motor skills helps children explore the world around them and also helps with cognitive development. Having children play and learn together in a preschool setting immensely boosts this skill.

  • Preschool activities boost pre-math and literacy skills
  • It nurtures a child’s curiosity
  • Preschool promotes social and emotional development

Preschool provides avenues for children to gain a sense of self, explore, play with their peers, socialize, and build confidence.

  • It prepares children for kindergarten

Preschool education experience makes easy children’s introduction to Kindergarten.

The great learning capability exhibited by children at this tender age, no doubt, has fueled the proliferation of early childhood programs in recent times. Nearly every school now has Preschool section taking care of the educational potentials of toddlers.

Given the high level of advantage a sound Preschool education provides, it becomes highly important that standard preschool education textbooks are developed to set young scholars up for future academic, emotional, and social success. This is what led to the development of LANTERN PRESCHOOL BOOKS, a unique textbook series prepared with the purpose of “helping children discover the joy of learning.”

As earlier established, infants are in the early stage of literacy development, and as such need books to build their confidence. Lantern Preschool books are designed to lay a solid foundation in: personal, social and emotional development, language development, the arts, early mathematical experiences, the world around us, and so on.

Authored by Preschool educational experts, Lantern Preschool books feature: repetitive phrases and sounds to maintain a child’s growing interest, rhymes and simple structure, non-verbal approaches to stimulate children visually and mentally and also encourage children to create their own stories, familiar objects and experiences that are enjoyable to children, children-interest designs, etc. Above all, the books follow the specifications of the NERDC pre-primary curriculum and contain Teaching Hints to aid teachers’ effectiveness.

Preschool education, through its play-like methods and relaxed teaching styles, help make use of the great assimilative capacities of children at the tender age and give them a solid foundation for the future ahead.
