Early Learning Skills Are Essential For Development
When parents enroll their kids in preschool, they expect their kids to become more independent, develop social skills and enhance or discover their innate abilities to guide them towards a fruitful future. Based on their ages, preschools have a curriculum that allows the students to move towards reaching their cognitive and emotional potential based on their developmental milestone stages.
Earlier Exposure to Math and Reading
Children’s math competencies from kindergarten to the middle of 1st grade is closely related to their mathematics achievements in their later years. For example, when asking students if they are inclined to study a math-related career, their answer is yes if they have mastered without difficulty the math classes through their entire school years. It is very rare that someone that has struggled with math in their earlier years would be geared towards studying math or (STEM) related career.
On the other hand, students may encounter reading difficulties through their entire lives. However, schools tend not to identify these children until they are older and falling behind in school. Earlier interventions could happen in preschools and identify these children much earlier to help them get through their reading difficulties.
Research has found correlations between preliteracy skills in kindergarten or first grade and reading skills/comprehension when older. Factors explored, including short-term memory for language-related information (Baddeley, 1986; Leather & Henry, 1994; Mann & Ditunno, 1990; Rapala & Brady, 1990), and efficient retrieval of verbal labels, among others concurrently or predictively.
