The Benefits of Kindergarten

Kindergarten is extremely popular in Australia. According to The Bureau of Statistics last year a total of 342,479 children aged 4 or 5 years old enrolled in a kindergarten/preschool program in Australia. Despite these statistics however, there are still children who don’t attend a kindergarten such as the excellent, Eskay Kids in Capalaba. Kindergarten attendance is not compulsory therefore it is ultimately the parents’ decision whether or not to send their children to kindergarten. This article will highlight the benefits of Kindergarten for young children.

 

Here’s why Children Love Kindergarten:

  • They get to meet new people – both adults (teachers) and other children
  • They get to play and have fun
  • They get to learn a range of educational things
  • They get to socialise and form special bonds
  • They get to have fun and be a part of a group

 

Here’s the Benefits of sending Children to Kindergarten:

  • Children grow socially and emotionally
  • They are able to further develop their fine motor skills through play, art, dance, music, movement and interacting with other
  • They learn how to be a part of a group and learn important social skills such as self-awareness and respect for others
  • They learn both verbal and nonverbal communication skills
  • Children learn language, literacy and numeracy skills, such as reading stories and counting objects
  • They also learn how to listen and behave in a classroom environment which paves the way for their higher education.
