The first day of kindergarten is always scary, but what about the very, very first day of school? Preschool is used as a learning level before kindergarten to give kids an opportunity to get used to the school routine. While this process is daunting for the child and their parents, it can be very useful in developing early academic, decision making, and social skills for the adolescent years.
Learning while at school is the ultimate goal for all preschool teachers. During preschool, the main focus is to balance learning and play time in order to prepare the tiny youngsters for the next level of their education. Academics in preschool mainly focus around preparation for kindergarten which includes some introductions to topics in math, English, etc.
