A quality Child Care/ Preschool Program has endless positive effects on young children. Children that have spent a significant amount of time being cared for and learning in a quality program have notably improved social skills over their stay at home with mommy or daddy counterparts. The children exhibit vastly improved sharing skills, problem solving, confidence, independence, self-reliance, the ability to more easily foster friendships, and an overall healthy trust of their immediate environment and that of the outside word.
Children that benefit from a quality care environment have a highly advanced learning curve when it comes to things such as rolling over, sitting, crawling, walking, and talking. These children reach these millstones at a much quicker pace in large part due to their peers. The younger children are taught by example and strive to play along with their more physically or mentally advanced peers.
Children in quality programs exhibit a higher level of compassion, kindness, and patience. Parents can witness these newly learned skill sets by simply watching their children play at the park with other children. Regardless of your child’s age, this can be a big sigh of relief to view your child playing harmoniously with others; to fully trust that your child will behave appropriately when necessary.
