10 Reasons to Send Your Child To Preschool

in Character, Cognitive, Emotional, Language, Social

People send their children to preschool because they think it is the expected path and the only path.

However, the following 10 reasons should be considered it you are thinking about sending your child to preschool.

10 Reasons to Send Your Child To Preschool:

1.  You want them to have a continually runny nose.

2.  You want a few hours to yourself.

3.  You want to feel like your child is getting an “education” by playing in a confined setting.

4.  You want someone else to encourage or correct them.

5.  You want your child to learn words that you find inappropriate.

6.  You want your child to learn behaviors that you find unacceptable.

7.  You want to be able to spend your time with your child trying to “un-teach” words and behaviors they learned in preschool.

8.  You want your child to mimic other children and want what the other kids want.

9.  You want your child to be pushed, hit, pinched or bitten by another child. (It only takes one moment of frustration or anger for a child to slip-up.)

10. You want your child to be less mature, less independent, and to have a smaller vocabulary.

Sadly, when I was in graduate school, I had to put my preschooler in a preschool/daycare, and we experienced all of the above. I did pull her out and stay ed home with her the minute I completed my requirements, which interrupted the demise of #10.

Experience, education, solid research and statistics prove that keeping your child at home with you during their 1st 5 years is THE BEST CHOICE for:

  • cognitive development
  • language development
  • social & emotional development
  • physical development
  • and self-help skills

 Preschool: What is it, anyway?

 It’s a classroom setting with lots of other children who will influence your child–usually with negative social consequences.
