3 Key Factors For Your Preschooler’s Successful Future
A quick quiz for you: when does a child’s future begin?
- When they enter the preschool classroom
- When they first enter the world
- Before they’re even born
If you guessed a or b then you are wrong.
Yes, your child’s education begins when they enter the preschool classroom. They begin to learn the ABC’s the 123’s and how to interact with other children their age. Preschool is where your toddler embarks on their first experiences without mom or dad always around. It’s where their first friends and memories are made.
Likewise, your child’s life really begins when they enter the world. Sure, you as a parent planned, stressed, and counted the days down before they’d make their appearance, but their life—as a real, thriving human—doesn’t begin until they are born. Sensory experiences are molded from the moment they enter the world, memories become formed, and even their first learning occurs. After birth your child grows, learning how to walk, talk, and become the tiny people their future selves were meant to be.
However, it’s not at birth when your child’s future begins. Contrary to what you might believe, your child’s future begins before they’re even born. Your own family life and history plays a huge role on how well your preschooler will perform in the future.
I’ve already discussed the importance of finding a quality preschool and how to go about searching for the San Diego preschool that is right for your toddler, but what about the time before they’re even born can you do to help?
The most important factors that dictate your child’s future are:
- Household Background
- Educational Encouragement
Let’s take a look at how these three points can impact your child’s life.
