Why Kindergarten Matters
Updated: Aug 19, 2019
Starting school is an exciting milestone, but it can be a stressful time for parents who are tasked with preparing their children for a big change. A lack of school-readiness can have a lasting impact on children, so parents and early childhood educators need to work together to equip them with the skills and ability to succeed. A Government Approved Kindergarten Program is designed to prepare children to enter Prep confidently. Early learning is a fun experience for children, and by getting them into the routine early you can ensure that they handle the transition to school hours easily.
Social and Emotional Intelligence
Learning to manage their emotions and make social connections are skills that children will need school and ultimately life! Like all things, practice makes perfect. Social and emotional abilities are developed by spending time with other children in the same age group. A Kindergarten program will provide an opportunity for your child to make friends, share their ideas and even experience some conflict – which can be very beneficial. Conflict allows children to learn to respect others, express themselves and learn how to manage their emotions.
Making Learning Fun and Accessible
Building a foundational knowledge for later life is important, but a high stress, strict environment is not conducive to early learning. Early learning is all about learning through play, having fun and picking up skills at a comfortable pace. Our Kindergarten educators develop play-based activities with learning opportunities embedded so that children are able to learn while having fun. At Dragonfly’s, we believe in exploring children’s natural interests, and letting them lead the way so that learning occurs organically.
The Dragonfly’s Kindergarten program is a Government Approved Kindergarten Program delivered by a fully-qualified teacher.
