Back to school season is officially here and this excites me more than you know. It’s not always easy to get the kids excited about back to school, but as a parent, education has always been very important in my household. I’ve always believed that it’s never too early to start getting your children excited about learning. We should be excited to learn new things no matter what age we are.
The Importance of Development In Children Ages 0 – 6
Making education a priority from the moment your child is born will not only help them build a love for education but it’s also important during that prime development stage of 0 – 6 years of age. During this stage, children are developing their own personalities, their building their communication skills, their motor skills are developing and so much more.
During this time, we should be giving our children as many learning opportunities as we possibly can. You can provide your child with learning opportunities in the home and in schools designed for young children.
How to Select the Right School For Your Child
You should be as selective as possible when looking at schools for your child. Some of the key things to keep in mind when selecting a school are:
- Is there a structured learning schedule
- Reviews from other parents
- Is the facility safe
- What curriculum is being taught
- How does the school incorporate play and learning
- Does the school document the learning
- How is discipline handled
One of the schools here in Alabama that I really like is La Petite Academy. La Petite Academy is a great example of a school that is taking learning to a whole new level. La Petite Academy focuses on teaching children to be well-rounded individuals that embrace new challenges, think critically, are engaged in learning and so much more. La Petite Academy works with infants and all the way up to kindergarten. La Petite encourages children are encouraged to build new friendships, use their imagination and are provided with a safe and secure learning environment.
