Toddlers learn essential literacy skills in preschool to develop strong English language skills for the future. That is why at My First Years Preschool, activities such as interactive storybook reading, “pretend” reading and writing, and other game activities are part of their curriculum.
In South Florida, children who have developed early literacy skills in their native language can transition to any other with their parent’s help. For example, play word games, and share storybooks reinforce the behavior towards a kid’s acquisition of language. Also, teachers can support a parent by suggesting a trip to the library or providing some books to take home. Based on interactive experiences with language and print media, they create a relationship between spoken language and written material.
Also, similarities between words in English and Spanish can be used as a foundation for instruction due to certain sounds the child is already familiar with. That being said, the parents play an essential part in their kid’s performance and acquisition of language.
Even though, by the time some children arrive in preschool with lower literacy skills, high-quality early childhood education programs such as the one at My First Preschool Years, have a significant impact on children’s later academic achievement. Their age-appropriate instruction can ensure that preschoolers can learn to be successful learners in kindergarten and beyond.
