Preschool makes kids’ future better
Some people believe that it is a waste of time to have their kids go to preschool. My stance is by attending preschool children have a head start in life and it improves their future.
I interviewed a friend that has a different view. My main reason is that kids have 13 years (and then college!) that they "have" to be in school. Preschool (in my opinion) is glorified daycare that takes time away that little ...view middle of the document...
Putting most kids in a classroom setting at 2, 3 or 4 years old is not necessary. There are issues (speech or hearing delays, autism, learning disabilities, etc.) that should be handled by professionals, but even then, that does not necessarily mean a school setting. Katie didn't set foot in a classroom until her first day of kindergarten. Only one of my nephews went to Head Start, and that, honestly, was just to give my SIL a break for a couple of hours because she also had a nursing newborn. All of the 7 kids on my side of the family are doing well in school, and they've never had trouble adjusting to the rules, routine, or structure of school. Keep in mind also that one of my nephews has ADHD and Katie takes medication for ADD. My (almost) 13 year old nephew has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and still brings home good grades. None of these issues would have been changed by preschool. So there it is, in a nutshell. Like I said, I'm not necessarily anti-preschool, but for the most part, I think it's not needed, and just takes precious time away from the parents and families.
