Our children deserve only the best in everything, especially in the area of early childhood education. As parents, it’s our responsibility to provide them with such. Fortunately, there are several great preschool programs we can choose from such as the preschool in Ohio. Even so, we should continue to be proactive as parents in ensuring that our children get the best possible education. We should help in checking factors that are detrimental to our children’s learning such as the following:
- Disorganized area
Kids roam around and are not actually involved in the activities. Or, perhaps the teachers control each activity resulting in kids not having the chance to freely explore the materials in class or play with them. Childcare programs should not let this happen.
- One-way learning materials
Childcare centers should avoid giving kids just one-way learning materials such as flashcards, worksheets, or even toys that don’t foster maximum learning. There are materials that don’t allow our kids to make their own choices and solve various problems.
- No participation of teachers in kids’ activities
It’s detrimental to kids’ learning when their teachers don’t participate in the activities. Kids don’t learn deeply if teachers don’t ask questions or make recommendations. Early childhood education programs should ensure the maximum participation of their teachers when it comes to children’s activities.
- Not setting clear limitations for kids’ behavior
Some teachers may not set clear boundaries for kids’ behavior which will have negative effects. Also, some teachers may just punish kids who misbehaved rather than aiding them to learn the better things they can do next time.
- Rare sharing of kids’ progress with families
Not or rarely sharing information regarding the progress of kids with their families is detrimental to learning. Some teachers may only communicate with families when issues arise and don’t care asking about the wishes and concerns of the family. Programs not trying to reach out to families in ways they can comprehend should be avoided.
