The quality of education your child receives early in life greatly impacts their growth and development. Preschool gives them the opportunity to learn new skills, discover how the world around them works, and begin developing their own character, as well as their social, emotional, and mental skills. Providing the right environment, proper guidance and good encouragement is essential for children to benefit from the above-mentioned opportunities.
One thing that makes a preschool classroom the best environment for your child is having a small class size. Here at Peek-a-Boo Daycare, we implement a small, developmentally appropriate class size help in:
- Safety and monitoring. Since there is a low student to teacher ratio in the classroom, easily supervise students, keeping them safe while monitoring lessons.. In this environment, your child will feel safe, thus making them more open to asking questions and participating in discussions.
- Close interaction. Teachers are able to adjust their manner of teaching due to having more time to understand your child’s behavior and needs. Since the teacher caters to a smaller batch, she’ll spend less time keeping the children orderly and more time teaching. This means more activity time, and teaching good morals. More time will also be available to cover each lesson to better reinforce and instill what is taught to students.
- Strong bond and communication. One of the important life skills every child should learn is how to socialize with their peers. In small classroom settings, children enjoy more time getting to know each other, and as a result, create a stronger relationship. Your little one will create closer bonds with each and everyone in their class, giving them a chance to build rapport and express their feelings. Every child will feel included, even the timid, shy ones.
- Personalized feedback. Every parent or guardian wants to hear specific feedback about their little ones. Since the teacher manages a smaller number of kids, she can take note of each student’s improvement and growth in the areas of their behavior, performance and various other skills. Parents are also able to discuss these items over with the teacher, making them more involved in their child’s early education.
Our program is child-centered, that is why we implement smaller class sizes. This enables us to focus on each child’s interests, rather than a force-feeding them a canned curriculum. In this way, a child’s interest is put first, making school time more enjoyable, for them while they develop the needed skills and knowledge appropriate for their age.
