Having preschool education is more than just letting kids socialize and play outside of the home. The human brain, especially during the first three years, is highly adaptable. It can absorb plenty of information from different sources. The saying that kids learn quickly isn’t an understatement.
How Did Preschool Originate
Preschool is part of a system known as early childhood education, or care and instruction of young children (usually between the ages of one to seven) outside of the home.
The concept was said to have begun in Germany, by Johann Friedrich Oberlin and Louise Scheppler in 1779 in Strassbourg. They started the school so that kids from parents, who worked in factories, as well as orphans, would have a place to learn and play.
It wasn’t necessarily called ‘preschool’ at that time; but rather, a form of infant school. By 1816, the idea spread in New Lanark, Scotland. Robert Owen opened the first British infant school that taught not only basic literacy and numeracy, but also good morals. His objective was to help children eventually be fit to work.
English educator Samuel Wilderspin opened his infant school in London in 1819, with a focus on play. In fact, he was credited for inventing the playground. He believed that playing was essential to the early development of a child’s overall (physical, intellectual, and moral) capacity. Early childhood education would be introduced to the United States in 1856 by Elizabeth Peabody.
Studying in Preschool Today
What began as a method for helping parents go to work unencumbered has become a race. Nowadays, parents who choose to educate their children at home are often ridiculed. But early childhood education isn’t just grades and standardized tests. It’s all about helping kids be well-rounded in terms of personal, social, and emotional development.
Even if you can’t send your kids to preschool, you can introduce them to activities that are fun and engaging. Play dates with similar age groups can be arranged to help young ones become familiar with teamwork and sharing. Physical health can be done through regular chores, such as gardening, cleaning, and cooking.
While preschool is now a prerequisite before primary education, it doesn’t mean that it should be demanding or stressful. Keep it light-hearted with lots of free play. Colorful toys, art materials, and wide, open grounds, can bring out the natural curiosity and imagination of a child.
What’s more, adults need not curb their ‘inner child’. Don’t be afraid to play and let loose as well!
