Preschool is an opportunity for growth. For many children, preschool is their first experience in a structured setting with teachers and groups of children. It’s an opportunity to learn to share, follow instructions, and begin the foundation for learning that will occur in elementary school. Not only does preschool prepare a child for kindergarten it also helps promote social and emotional development. Especially when you have them in the right environment. Children get the opportunity to feel safe in a loving and fun learning environment away from their parents.
There are several plusses to in-home preschool:
- Smaller numbers of children
- Structure the same as preschool but a little more flexible for kiddos that are having a hard time adjusting.
- In a home preschool, you have an opportunity to work with your teacher closer with the teacher to help nurture their learning goals without a set of standards. Kids at this age should be able to slow down from all the expectations that are put on them and be given the opportunity to learn more through play.
- Willing to work one on one with the parents to achieve goals that benefit the child.
One of the most important benefits of preschool is that it teaches kids how to socialize. More specifically, children learn how to show respect—to adults, other children, and their environment. They also learn how to take turns, cooperate and share with others, as well as problem-solve and compose themselves during stressful situations.
In my preschool, I value the opinion and enjoy working together with each parent on areas that they may be concerned in and helping their children through it.
Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum helps me to keep my littles on track with research-based activities where they can learn and explore through play.

We made crowns pretending to Old King Cole!
I spend less time prepping and more time with my kids! It is a win for all of us. Experience preschool also weaves in research-based playful games and projects.
We colored Humpty then I cut out for them and they had to put him back together again.
