Pre-school Starters: Does Pre-school Education Really Matter?



How important is pre-school? Is it just play?


What does the research say about children starting school behind their peers?


What are the key considerations when selecting kindergarten/childcare?


Join us for the session conducted online in collaboration with ECDA (Early Childhood Development Agency) which addresses the above questions to help you better understand more on the critical early years of your child’s life.


This programme would allow parents to ease the child’s transition and understand the mechanics of preparing children socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically for parent preparedness. It would highlight the importance of pre-school education and for parents to start their children in early education. Research has indicated often that the relationship between teachers and parents is paramount to ensuring positive outcomes for children in pre-school, primary school and even beyond.
