The preschool years are a very exciting and important time for children. The years between three and five are when learning and development really accelerates. The skills children start to develop at PLC Sydney Preschools over this period will help them thrive as they enter school. We support not only teaching and learning during this time but also the social and emotional growth your child will go through.
Located in Ashfield, PLC Sydney Preschools is a new centre open to both girls and boys. We pride ourselves on nurturing the whole child and preparing them for a really strong start to school. And as a recipient of funding from the NSW Government’s Start Strong program, we are able to offer reduced fees to our students for 2022.
What kind of social skills will my child start to learn?
During the preschool years your child will start to learn about different social skills and how to deal with them. When your child is attending preschool, these skills will be developed quicker as they will be in a classroom with other children and will need to utilise these skills.
There are a range of different skills they will start to learn and pick up that will help them socially. Some of the skills that they will start to learn include:
What kind of emotional skills will my child start to learn?
The preschool age is a time when your child will start to notice they have a range of different emotions. During these years, it may be hard for them to understand how to deal with the different emotions and the appropriate way to handle them. At PLC Sydney Preschools we spend time looking at the Zones of Regulation and how to recognise and cope with different emotions.
If your child is attending preschool it can help them to learn how to deal with the different emotions in a healthy way. Some skills that they may learn include:
How does preschool help with social and emotional development?
Preschool helps young children in a range of different ways. While academics and preparing them for the academic aspect of starting school is important, we also focus heavily on the importance of getting them ready socially and emotionally.
Preschool gives them a chance to begin their social interactions, play with other children and grasp the concept of a wide variety of social situations. We have a strong play-based learning focus and children will learn to speak to, play with and build relationships with other children.
The preschool age is a glorious time. Your children are sponges, developing new skills and furthering those they may already have. By enrolling your child into a preschool program, you can help to nurture and encourage their growth and development. Giving them the best head start into their next journey.
