The importance of early learning and development and the everlasting impact it will have on your child cannot be overstated. During the pre-school years, your little one’s brain is forming more than one million new neuron connections every second.
Research conducted by Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child has found that “Healthy development in the early years provides the building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, responsible citizenship, lifelong health, strong communities, and successful parenting of the next generation.”
When studying this early learning and development, researchers are focussing on children’s ability to express and manage their emotions, exercise impulse control, show empathy, build self-confidence and develop and support relationships with others.
Scientific studies into child development indicate that social and processing skills learned by age five “are the best predictors of later social and emotional competencies, such as managing behaviour, making social connections, and tolerating frustration with peers.”
With this in mind, choosing where to send your child to receive an early education before they start school should not be a decision you make lightly. How do you choose though, between the many early learning centres and preschools available?
There’s one early learning centre offering your child a distinct advantage: the Shine Advantage™.
What is the Shine Advantage™?
Rise and Shine Kindergarten™ have developed their own unique curriculum to ensure your child is learning and developing holistically.
