Welcome to Monett Elementary School
Cub Pride - January 22, 2016
 
    

Why Preschool?  10 Great Reasons!
 
     Preschool provides a foundation for learning both socially and academically that will help your child succeed in elementary school and life.  Research has shown that students who attend a high quality preschool are more likely to graduate from high school, attend college, be employed, and own a home later in life.  But, what does preschool offer your child right now?   
 
  1. Preschool is an opportunity for growth.  Preschool offers an opportunity for a child to learn to share and follow directions.  It allows their “world” to grow to include new friends and teachers. 
  2. Preschool prepares children for kindergarten.  Students have an opportunity to expand their language development, which will help in pre-reading skills in kindergarten.  What may look like play is intentionally designed to create opportunities for students to use new vocabulary or skills.
  3. Preschool promotes social and emotional development.  Young children learn how to become a friend, play with others, and take turns.  They also are able to build relationships with other trusting adults. 
  4. The preschool environment is structured.  Classroom space is organized to encourage social interaction and minimize congestions and conflicts.  The day is organized in different parts:  calendar, centers, and small groups.
  5. Children get to make choices.  What center do I want to go to?  What do I want to build today?  Student choice is an important component of a high quality preschool program.
  6. Children learn to take care of their own needs.  Children feel better about themselves when they are encouraged and taught to become independent and help the classroom community.  This is done through classroom jobs, putting on their own coats, washing their hands, and taking care of their own bathroom needs.
  7. Preschool promotes language and cognitive skills.  Between the ages of 3-5, a child’s vocabulary grows from 900 to 2,500 words, and their sentences become longer and more complex.  This is fostered through shared reading, conversations in centers, and playing with friends.
  8. Preschool teachers nurture a child’s curiosity.  Preschool students have an active imagination and enjoy learning through make-believe.  The dramatic play center is a big hit for your children to act out their own stories.
  9. Preschool activities boost pre-math and literacy skills.  Students sort objects at the sensory table, play with puzzles, write in the writing center, and sing songs.  All of these activities support reading and math.
  10. Children make friends and have fun!
