Education is useless because it destroys our common sense, because it isolates us from the rest of humanity, because it hardens our hearts and swells our heads. Bookish persons have long been subjects of suspicion and contempt. – source: Daniel Cottom, University of Pennsylvania
The emotional, social and physical development of young children has a direct effect on their overall development and on the adult they will become. That is why understanding the need to invest in very young children is so important, so as to maximize their future well-being. – source: child_encyclopedia.com

A teacher with over 35 years experience in the pre-school education sector recently identified 13 key benefits of early childhood education:
1. Socialization: It’s important to introduce our children to other children and support their transition into their own friendship groups and the earlier we do this, the better, as it helps children overcome shyness and gain self-confidence, but if we leave this too long, we hinder their social development.
2. Concept of Cooperation: Learning how to share, cooperate, take turns, and persevere within a safe learning environment, guided by professionals who have the children’s best interests at heart. This is especially important for the first child, who may not be used to sharing with any siblings at home and while it can be a difficult lesson, it’s so crucial to learn it early.
3. Encouraging Holistic Development: The approach taken to build a strong foundation for a child’s emotional, social, physical, and mental development, which will prepare them for a lifetime and early childhood educators are trained in identifying areas where support is needed for each child and building programs and activities around these.
4. Enthusiasm for Lifelong Learning: Lessons should be given in a fun and exciting way that encourages children to be effective learners, thus inspiring a thirst for learning with eagerness and enthusiasm.
5. Convey the Value of Education Through Experience: Grasping the value of learning and education by setting an example as role models and by providing actual experiences. While parents will always be the most important influence on a child’s early life, introducing them to a preschool environment provides them with a new perspective on the importance of education that will remain with them throughout their schooling journey.
6. Respect: Teaching the value of respect for others is not limited to people and belongings, but can also mean respect for their environment, both immediate and global. There is no better place to learn this virtue than in a hectic preschool environment, where everything is shared and civility and manners are both taught and learned organically.
7. Teamwork: Demonstrating and instilling the importance of teamwork that can teach respect for the opinions of others, listening, cooperation and equality. Many preschool activities are centred around teamwork for this very reason; a person who learns how to work in a team at an early age will ultimately be more socially attuned and more employable!
8. Resilience: It’s important that early childhood educators and parents work together to develop resilience in children as early as possible. By creating a consistent, secure and fair social environment, with clear expectations and predictable consequences, children can develop skills in managing themselves and their emotions. It’s a teacher’s job to provide a challenging environment where children can learn through first hand experiences. They may experience bumps, bruises or losing a game from time-to-time, but this is the foundation for building coping strategies for greater challenges in life.
9. Concentration: During preschool years, children explore at every opportunity to discover new experiences, new friends, and new environments. Their minds are so lively and imaginative. Early childhood educators balance this zest with the ability to listen, follow directions, attend to tasks, and participate in group activities to develop the critical life skill of concentration.
10. Patience: Every day as adults, we encounter situations where our patience is tested. Children need opportunities to be involved in an abundance of social experiences, where they can explore and practice the social skill of patience. By teaching through examples, role modelling and social experiences, children can develop their patience and learn to wait for their turn.
12. Confidence and Self-Esteem: A strong sense of wellbeing provides children with confidence, optimism and self-esteem which will encourage children to explore their talents, skills, and interests. Positive interactions with other children and teachers promote a positive, healthy, and secure view of themselves that allow them to approach situations and problems confidently throughout their lives.
13. Exposure to Diversity: Valuing difference and diversity are crucial to a child’s early development. Early childhood education serves to guide children to appreciate and accept differences and become well-rounded contributors to society. It is important that children understand that everyone is unique and special in their own way with their own culture, beliefs, and ethnicity.
"Preschool is so much more than playing. While the basic educational benefits of preschool (such as literacy and numeracy) are tangible, the advances children achieve towards becoming well-rounded individuals are truly invaluable."
Would you like to benefit from free or subsidised childcare so that you can do the things you are currently unable to do because the children are at home?
A Case Study:
J, the younger of two siblings, was an unruly boy and at 3 years old was behind in his speech and language development. J had been with his childcare provider for several months but wasn’t progressing at a rate that was typical for his age and was falling behind the other children at the setting. The provider who had carried out initial baseline assessments with J and monitored his progress raised the issues with J’s parent who was equally concerned given that J would be attending reception class soon. The childcare provider decided with mum’s agreement that some additional support was required and a speech and language therapist (SLT) was brought in. Working in partnership with the SLT some bespoke activities were devised that reflected J’s interest for J to try at the childcare setting and at home and a behaviour management plan was created to help with J’s behavioural issues and additional equipment and resources were introduced. It took several months for the principles applied to begin to benefit J but by the time he was about to enter reception he was much better prepared.
