Common Preschool Programs Offered To Children

There are a few different preschool curriculum programs for children. You will want to learn more about each of them so that you can choose the preschool that will be the best for your child. Here are the most common preschool curriculum programs that are offered, and a little bit about each of them. Find the one that you are most interested in and look for a school in your area that offers it.

Montessori

One of the most common, and most effective types of preschool learning centers is a Montessori school. You will find that these schools help to teach a lot of organizational skills. They also focus on teaching the child to be independent and help them to increase their self esteem. Most of the time, these programs let the child work at their own pace. The child will be given their own materials and will be able to work at their own pace at the guidance of the teacher.

Progressive

Another great type of preschool is a progressive program. This is where children are encouraged to learn while they are playing. This may meant that they work in centers where they are building with blocks, painting, drawing, or putting together puzzles. While they are learning, they are still having a great time. To them, it is really not a learning experience at all. This type of school is great for teaching children about social interaction.

Reggio Emilia

If your child likes to explore and learn things on their own, then you may want to consider Reggio Emilia type curriculum. This type of preschool gives children the opportunity to use their own creativity and imagination in order to learn. They will work on science, math and reading and they also will take a lot of field trips. They may even work on several classroom projects that will enhance their learning experience.

Combination

Some of the preschools may put together a combination of these different types of curriculum, and then they will just make it their own. They will give the children a great combination of academics, play time, and creativity. If you simply cannot decide which of the school types is best for your preschooler, then you may want to consider a school that does a combination of these things.

As you look into each of the preschools in your local area, you will want to talk to them about their curriculum. You will also want to take a tour of the preschool. Have them let you observe a classroom in action during the day so that you can see what your child has in store for them when they enroll in the school. Make sure that you play up the preschool experience with your child so that they think it is a fun and exciting experience. If you do this, you will pave the way to a successful transition to grade school and they will likely continue loving school as they get older.
