As a parent, one of the best things you can do for your child is to send them to nursery school. Children who attended nursery school perform better in school than children who did not. Nursery school introduces your child to important concepts and skills. Starting your child’s education early helps give them an edge over their future classmates. Children who attend nursery school will be bright, enthusiastic learners later in life.
Nursery school also gives a child an opportunity to learn valuable social skills. When children are held back in Kindergarten, the reason is usually not a failure to understand the basic skills taught at this level. Children who have not interacted with their young peers enough sometimes do not cope well with the school environment. They do not know how to share or take turns, and might act inappropriately in social situations. If you send your child to a quality program such as the one offered by our Rockville Nursery School, they will have the opportunity to develop important classroom and social skills. That way, when they enter school, they will be ready and will thrive.
Parents who are reluctant to send their child to nursery school despite its many documented benefits can feel better about the prospect by visiting a facility in person and meeting its staff. The staff at any reputable nursery school program will be happy to let you tour the facility and talk with the staff. Seeing how the trained professionals of our Rockville Nursery School interact with the children can help reassure nervous parents.
