Even if your kids give you pushback, consistency is one of the most important aspects of parenting. Although children act like they want new rules every day, children feel secure and safe when they know their routines, boundaries, and expectations.
This is because children innately need to internalize, rehearse and repeat behaviors. If you have a fluctuating work or childcare schedule, a structured environment like daycare or preschool is the best place for your child.
It’s understandable to think that a relaxed or fluctuating schedule will develop easy-going kids, but this isn’t always the case. Children equate security with structure. This structure gives children the confidence to build relationships and develop confidence and skills.
Knowing this, Crestwood Preschool Academy has a predictable schedule, so every child feels comfortable, confident, and secure. Our routine includes fun and educational blocks of time, like:
- Music and movement
- Arts and crafts
- Imaginative play
- Outdoor time
- Preschool curriculum
Another benefit of structure is an easier transition to kindergarten. Children with no routine or schedule may have difficulty transitioning to a structured school day. As they accommodate to a new school routine, they may struggle to make good grades and relationships at school, putting them behind their peers who have attended a daycare or preschool program.
On the other hand, children who are adjusted to a structure and routine are ready to make the transition to school. Even if the school schedule is different from their preschool program, they can adapt to new routines and build relationships faster, significantly improving their learning skills and educational experience.
Crestwood Preschool Academy is proud to offer an outstanding curriculum that is educational and fun, and prepares your child for kindergarten per state educational standards.
