Children are little sponges ready to soak up all the learning in the world. Watching children learn and grow is beautifully amazing. Unlike a few states in the Nation, Florida cares greatly about the education of our future workers. That’s why programs like Voluntary Pre Kindergarten (VPK), offered for free, are influential and successful in creating advanced learners. As hosts of VPK at Tiny Turtles Preschool of Jupiter, we believe in these programs. Early childhood education in Jupiter, FL is easy to access with programs like VPK. Here’s why you should consider it for your four-year-old.
Advantages Of Free VPK
School can be tough and pre kindergarten gives children a guided entrance to the school system. The human brain is incredibly powerful because it is capable of reading and understanding language. That does not come naturally, and children must train their brains to speak, read, and write. Emergent literacy, communication, and language are just small focuses of the VPK program, but they are essential to strong school success.
Formal education consumes a child’s life from age five or six to 18. There are extreme statistics noted in third grade that show the likelihood of whether a child will pass or fail high school. This specific age is an indicator because it is the grade in which children transform from learning-to-read to reading-to-learn. If a student struggles with reading, he or she is likely to fall behind in other studies that require the skill to read in order to pass.
The sonner parents and teachers can work with young children to set great examples for how to learn, read, and excel in school, the better children are going to succeed. We love to do this by engaging our little ones in stories, and we encourage you to do the same at home.
