Will my child be ready for elementary school?

More and more parents are recognizing the importance of the early years to their children’s success in elementary school and beyond.

Consider this: the most active time of brain development occurs before age 5! Strong neural connections formed during this critical time are established by the experiences children have with their environment. The quality of those early interactions determines how children continue to learn and form relationships, strongly influencing their future success and happiness.

Research confirms that nurturing guidance and attention to every aspect of development in the early years help children develop compassion, confidence and a love of learning, in addition to competence and academic skills.

“School readiness is essential to a child’s success in elementary school and beyond,” said Erin Lundie, franchise owner of Primrose School of Lantana. “As a former teacher and assistant principal, I saw firsthand that children who receive a quality preschool, pre-K and kindergarten education develop into well-rounded individuals prepared for learning and for life.”

At Primrose School, “readiness” means more than just learning how to add and spell. It means learning how to think critically, use mathematical concepts, share and show self-control – skills that support a positive transition to elementary school. Primrose School supports the development of social and life skills, as well as executive function. Research shows that executive functioning skills help children establish positive relationships and close the achievement gap.

The Primrose Schools Balanced Learning® system blends academics, play and character development to build a strong foundation and nurture a lifelong love of learning. In addition to core academic subjects, the curriculum includes enrichment programs in music, physical activity, art, sign language, Spanish, technology and
social skills

Parents choose Primrose School because of its proven value in preparing children for success in school and in life. Nationally recognized assessment tools and our own research with Primrose parents show that Primrose students are advanced in social skills and concept knowledge, and therefore more ready for elementary school than many of their peers.

Primrose School believes that with the right foundation, anything is possible for your child! To learn more about the many lifelong benefits of enrolling your child in Primrose School of Lantana, please visit www.primroselantana.com or call 940.455.2550.
