3 Academic skills preschoolers must know

While attending a preschool a child will not only develop academically but in various other aspects such as socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually, these days of growth are filled with developments of cognitive skills and at this stage basics like counting amd vocabulary words may seem simple to us but they will set your child up for a lifetime of knowledge.

Nowadays preschools also help with the development of positive self esteem. Pre-Academic skills are the foundation of a child’s journey of learning, they are the building blocks that a child needs for future success. Research shows that strong preschool academic skills lead to competency when the child is in formal school.

Some important learnings that your child will achieve in a preschool are :

  1. Early literacy: Exposing children to an environment that is rich in language and is inclusive of the interest & understanding of books, simple stories , awareness of phonetics and phonemics along with objects and sign recognition.
  2. Maths & Science: At this age we think of math as the basic understanding that letters & numbers mean something.Exposure to colours & shapes, matching, sorting, size order & beginning counting are all parts of these skills.
  3. Pre-writing: Scribbling is the beginning of writing as it progresses, children will start to be able to initiate drawing line down, a line across circles, these skills eventually lead to forming letters.

The initial 5 years of a child’s life are crucial and important in their development and it is during this time when learning begins. Few years before a child starts formal school and thus it is important to expose your child to a rich language environment where they can play, explore, have new experiences and follow their natural curiosity, hence a preschool plays an important role, which helps your child develop holistically.
