So you’ve been
considering the option of preschool for your youngster but you aren’t quite
sure if it’s the route that you want to take. You think it’s critical that your
young child begin learning the educational materials which are taught in preschool.
These materials help your child get off to a good start with his or her education
and generally stimulate the growth of the child’s brain. But you don’t think
that you’re quite ready to start sending your kids off to some stranger’s school
for half a day. The whole reason that you now work part-time or from home is
because you want to spend time with your preschool age child while he or she
is young. And you don’t really want others to have such an influence over your
baby just yet.
But going back to that other hand, you really want your preschool child to be learning what a school can teach. Well, have you considered the option of homeschool preschool for your child? There are many benefits to homeschool at the preschool age starting with the fact that your child will get the educational tools that you want him or her to have without experiencing the potential negative effects of the social environment away from home that would be had at a standard preschool. Homeschool gives you the control over your child’s education which is especially important at this impressionable age and helps you to feel more secure in the knowledge that your child is being taught what you believe is important for him or her to learn.
In addition to the homeschool environment giving you control over what you teach your child, it gives you control over how you teach your child. This is important because of the simple fact that all children learn differently. At the preschool age, you are still beginning to learn about how your child learns. Some children will be more tactile whereas others will be more visual, and you will be able to try different things with your homeschool curriculum to see what works best with your child. This will mean that, should your child attend public school in the future, you will be able to educate his or her teachers about the best ways to educate your child and you’ll be able to give your child the support necessary to learn in the way that he or she learns best.
Yet another benefit of homeschool for preschool children is that it allows for a schedule which works for the whole family. On a daily basis, this means that you can work around your family’s other activities to incorporate preschool education into your lives without compromising the other things that you enjoy doing together. On a more “big picture” basis, this kind of flexibility lets your family enjoy spontaneous activities as well as planned vacations without compromising your child’s preschool education. Plus, when you homeschool your children, you are spending time with them which is always a benefit for families.
If it is possible
for the family to have a parent at home who can participate directly in the
child’s education at the preschool age, this can be one of the greatest things
for the child’s future ability to learn. The preschool child is at an age where
he or she learns from the environment and by making the home and school environment
one and the same, you can have control over your child’s learning while you
learn about your child. This well-rounded preschool experience will benefit
your child for years to come.
