What Parents can do to Help with their Child’s Early Development

At Little White House Learning Center of Milford, CT we strive to develop the foundation of your child’s early education through various cognitive and social skills. These skills learned in school should be nurtured and further developed by parents in the home. Parents that play an active role and stay on top of their children’s curriculum will create a more positive and successful learning experience for both parent and child. Here is a recommended article here, Panworld Education states “young children’s acquisition of problem-solving, language, and social-emotional skills are facilitated by interactions with their parents.”

We all want to make sure we are doing the very best we can and we are often asked, “What can I do at home to help?” The first step to creating a better environment for your early childhood development is an open line of communication between parents with teachers. Developing a relationship with your child teachers is paramount in establishing a great school/home environment. At Little White House Daycare we understand the importance of this process and ensure the parents involvement throughout every step of their child’s time here at the center. We are happy to share this testimonial from one of many great families here at the center:

“My sons attended Little White House in the 3 and 4 year old programs. The teachers really connected with me and kept me informed about the progress my children made and about the areas they had concerns with. They had a genuine love for the children and a true knowledge of the development expected in each class, I loved how they warmly welcomed us each morning and about our weekends on Monday mornings.”

Understanding the value of the parent-teacher relationship our staff goes above and beyond to involve parents on a daily basis with their children’s curriculum and activities. While there are many ways to educate a child, studies show that simply providing a loving, safe and nurturing environment is the foundation. Our advice, read to them often, sing to them when you can, and always, always play!

How Important is Pre-School Attendance? Little White House Learning Center of Milford

The pre-school years are unquestionably the most productive of a child’s early education. Learn more.

The pre-school years are unquestionably the most productive of a child’s early education. I am reminded of a quote by Maria Montessori, “The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.” creator of the Montoessori Method

“The long term effects of early education on a child’s social and emotional development may be the most important outcome of a high-quality preschool education. Make sure your child receives all the benefits that preschool has to offer:

  • Committing to having your child attend pre-school every day on time.
  • If your child is reluctant to come to school, be sure to communicate this to the teacher. Together, you can make plans to address the concerns of your child.
  • Make sure your child has a daily predictable routine, including a routine for bedtime and waking up in the morning.
  • Be sure to allow enough time for the routines so that you and your child do not feel rushed.
  • Have your child get a good night’s rest to make sure he/she has enough energy to participate in classroom activities.
  • When talking with your child, be positive about preschool and the school staff. Cultivate your child’s interest in discovering new things and his or her love of learning
  • Remember, by bringing your child to preschool every day, you are helping to ensure that he or she will live up to their full potential and become a successful lifelong learner.

Research also finds that chronic absence in the early grades is associated with lowered proficiency in reading and math, and increased retention. Chronic absences in the early years of schooling often set a pattern of absenteeism that continues into later grades. Read more

Early childhood development, http://www.nea.org/home/18163.htmNEA President Dennis Van Roekel: “High-quality early childhood education and full-day kindergarten are fundamental to a student’s long term success and shouldn’t be determined by their parents’ income… [It] is the right thing to do.”

A well-known study performed by HighScope Perry Preschool Study, https://highscope.org/ found that individuals who were enrolled in a quality preschool program ultimately earned up to $2,000 more per month than those who were not. Young people who were in preschool programs are more likely to graduate from high school, to own homes, and have longer marriages, according to the study.

Our goal is provide loving nurturing bonds that will foster and challenge your child’s development.
