As a parent, you chose your child’s preschool because you believed it was the best environment to help them learn valuable life skills in a nurturing environment. Well-trained and compassionate preschool teachers can make a big difference in your child’s life. Here are some reasons why:
Good teachers have childcare expertise
The caregivers and educators in your child’s preschool or daycare center have training, knowledge, and experience in early childhood education. Your child’s preschool teachers are invested in your child’s development, and can answer your questions about things like teaching your child how to share, or age-appropriate STEAM activities. Your child’s teacher can work with you to benefit your child’s development.
Good teachers know your child
As you know, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to parenting, and what’s good for one child may not work for another. Because your child’s preschool teacher spends so much one-on-one time with your child, they can give you advice and guidance specific to your child’s unique needs, interests, and personality. They also create a warm, friendly, and highly personal environment in which to learn. A good preschool teacher makes sure your child gets the care and attention that will help them thrive.
Good teachers build a school community
Good preschool teachers place communication and family engagement high on their list of values. By encouraging involvement through parent events, volunteer opportunities, field trips, or simply dropping in to say hi, teachers strengthen the bond between your child’s home and school.
These are just a few positive effects a good preschool teacher can have on your child’s education. Together, you and your child’s preschool teacher ensure your child develops a strong foundation for positive developmental outcomes.
