From the moment a baby is born, it is learning. It learns when to cry for food, or when it has a dirty diaper, etc. Children learn new things every day. As children grow, they start communicating and understanding those around them. Most children learn colors by two years of age because we use colors in our daily life.
Most parents understand when the child is ready to learn the alphabet. They introduce letter rhymes, ABCs, and word recognition to teach them. When a child shows interest in these activities, parents should consider Pre-K education.
When Does A Child Learn to Read?
Studies show that children do not develop the interest to read unless they familiarize themselves with a book at their home. The more the child encounters books, stories, and novels, the sooner a child will be reading fluently. If reading becomes a daily activity, it can develop into long term literacy.
What is Kindergarten?
The word kindergarten originated from the German language. Kinder means children, and garten means garden. The word kindergarten originated from Froebel, a German linguist. Froebel said children are like tiny flowers; they vary but require care to grow and flourish.
Pre-School and Kindergarten are both considered to be an early educational approach. Pre-school helps children prepare for higher education. Children from the ages of three to five attend Pre-K, while children ages age five attend Kindergarten.
