How Preschool Helps to Develop a Strong Foundation for Social Skills for Your Child

We all want our children to be as prepared as possible to face the world and the challenges it will present. As with anything that is built to stand the test of time, a strong and solid foundation is imperative. Social skills and self-confidence are two of the most foundational building blocks in a child’s success, and Preschool is fundamental for helping young children adapt to learning outside of the home. As a transitional stage between home and elementary school, Preschool is a gentle starting point where young children will learn to socialize with unfamiliar peers and adults and begin developing the self-confidence they will need to explore new learning opportunities.

At Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Valrico, we will teach your preschooler how to communicate well with others and encourage healthy peer-interaction, necessary skills in developing positive social relationships. Our structured, yet flexible, preschool program allows your child to progress at his own pace and each positive experience builds his self-confidence. Our teachers are trained and experienced in working with a myriad of behavior issues and personality types and will work to help each child learn to be responsible for their behaviors and develop empathy for their peers along the way. Our “Hug first, then teach” philosophy fosters an environment of love and security encouraging your child to be open to learning and engaging with his peers. These principles of accountability, healthy peer-interactions and working well with others will become the basis for successful social interactions in the future.

As fellow parents and grandparents, we understand the importance of parental involvement. We encourage regular feedback on your child’s strengths and weaknesses so we can work in tandem to better equip them for future success. Our goal is to make learning fun, but effective, so we strive to incorporate many different facets into our Preschool learning environment. A few of the skills we work to teach are:

  • Character Development
  • Social-Emotional Activities
  • Developmentally-appropriate Practices
  • Hands-on Involvement
  • Decision-Making and Problem-solving Skills
  • Vocabulary
  • Literacy Skills
  • At Kids R Kids Learning Academy of Valrico, we provide well-organized, child-focused classrooms with a schedule that encourages a balance of active and quiet activities. We share your passion for laying the strongest possible foundation for success to help your child soar into their brightest future. If you have a Preschool-aged child now, or are interested in gathering information for future enrollment, contact one of our enrollment specialists today to schedule a tour. Our programs include Daycare, Preschool, V-PK, Before and After School Care. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
