Why You Should Consider Full Day Preschool for Your ChildPosted on May 8, 2015 by Michelle Kraus
Preschool is often broken up into two different segments: morning students and afternoon students. But, what ever happened to full-day preschool and what benefits does being in school full day have to offer?
According to a recent survey, a lot in terms of better preparedness for both learning and social development.
Primarily, full-day benefits are due to a greater ability to explore various learning domains in 7 hours rather than just 3 or 4 hours. And, while full-day vs. half-day students don’t show a marked difference in literacy and cognition, children can benefit from enhanced social interaction and other skills they otherwise wouldn’t develop (or at least not this early).
At Ladybug Child Care Center, we offer full day preschool for all ages to ensure that your child is having adequate time for free play, outdoor play, music, and choice time where your little one can explore their own interests.
