According to studies from across the nation, more and more scientists, child development psychologists, and educators are finding evidence supporting that children learn differently than adults. We’ve always known this, thinking that children are less capable than us, but the fact is that children from newborns to about the age of six are more capable of learning than adults. It’s no wonder when we think about the fact that children have to teach themselves important lessons; they have to learn an entirely new language, social cues, emotional responses, appropriate behavior, how things work, how to stand, walk, run, and play. Because of this essential time in your child’s life, it is important to choose the right preschool in New Cumberland.
At Learning & Sharing, we are focused on guiding children toward learning, giving them the tools they need to grow and thrive. Because of this, we stay on top of the latest research regarding child development, so we are more able to meet each child where they are and truly help them learn in a way that makes sense to them. Much of this learning process involves letting children explore. According to an article by Cornell University’s Department of Human Development, children are “little scientists,” and need to be allowed to explore and to play. By keeping their environment safe while allowing them creative liberties in their free play time, we encourage all of our preschool children to use their curiosity to learn.
When it comes to your child, you want them to have the very best, and that includes their education. Learn more about our teaching philosophy and contact us today to schedule a visit.
