The Benefits of Preschool
The Preschool experience is critical, as it helps 3, 4 and 5 year-old children develop the academic and life skills that will carry them into adulthood. Preschool provides children with essential opportunities to learn and practice the social-emotional, problem-solving, and academic skills that they will use throughout their lives.
