Once upon a time, preschool was considered to be either an excess of over-achieving parents or an alternative to daycare. In the past few decades, however, research into early childhood development has shown that children are prepared to start their educations much earlier than previously thought. As long as children are still given time to play and be children, an early start on education is nothing but beneficial.
Once a child starts speaking and developing a vocabulary, that child is ready to start learning the fundamentals. Early childhood curricula from The Critical Thinking Co. introduce preschool-age children to the rudiments of reading, writing, math, science, and social science. As a child's language skills develop, so too does the child's ability to start thinking logically, problem solving, and building the foundations of more complex skill sets.
If this sounds somewhat intense for the under-five crowd, keep in mind that all of this is achieved with riddles, puzzles, games, and activities that appeal to young children. There is no reason a small child cannot have a fun and carefree childhood while simultaneously developing the skills he or she will need for the rest of his or her life. With The Critical Thinking Co. products, your child can start kindergarten knowing how to read and write, and add and subtract.
Whether you are a parent planning to homeschool your child, a parent looking to give your child a head start, or an educator leading a small preschool class, The Critical Thinking Co. products can put you and your child on the right track. Helping students at all stages of development achieve success has been the impetus behind The Critical Thinking Co. for over 30 years.
