2 Years of Preschool is Better Then 1

November 2, 2017

 

Many parents are concerned about school readiness. Currently in Australia 1 in 4 children arrive at school without the skills they need to learn. Chapter 1 Early Learning provides a high quality Preschool program that assists children to develop the skills to prepare them for the next Chapter of school life.

 

Research shows the importance of high quality preschool programs for strengthening children's social, cognitive and emotional development.

 

A landmark UK study showed that students who attended 2 and even 3 years of preschool had better outcomes at the start and the end of school.

  • At the start of school, these children had better development in language, pre-reading, early number concepts, independence, concentration and sociability.

  • At the end of school, they achieved higher total final exam scores, better grades in English and in maths, and took more final year exams. They also had better social behaviours and self-regulation (Taggart 2015).

 

The School Readiness curriculum at Chapter 1 covers all aspects of the key developmental learning areas including cognitive skills, language skills, social and emotional skills, self help skills and physical skills. This is achieved by providing a variety of experiences that build on the individual children's interests making each a confident learner.
