Why are preschool programmes good for your child?

Preschool helps children:

  • get new knowledge and skills – for example, they start learning more about numbers, letters and words
  • improve their communication and social skills through playing and interacting with other children and adults
  • make new friends and develop new relationships with adults
  • develop physical skills – for example, children learn to balance on play equipment and practise fine motor skills like drawing with a pencil and cutting with scissors
  • develop problem-solving and creative thinking skills
  • develop responsibility, independence, confidence and self-worth through doing things like looking after their own belongings and spending time away from home
  • get ready for the transition to primary school.
