Choose an Educational, Nurturing Preschool Program in Sandy & Salt Lake City
Choosing the right preschool isn’t easy. Making the wrong decision can negatively affect your child’s future. You can make a checklist of what you’re looking for when you’re shopping for a preschool in Sandy or Salt Lake City, but you also want to give weight to longevity and experience. New schools with new ideas may look exciting, but they are as yet unproven. Devlin’s Child Development Center has been operating its preschools in Sandy and Salt Lake City for more than 10 years, and in that time, we’ve educated some of the area’s best students.
What Makes a Good Preschool in Salt Lake City or Sandy?
In many ways, running a successful preschool is harder than running a successful high school. That’s because with preschool, you must make learning fun by teaching children important skills through play.
The basis of any good pre-K program is a carefully created curriculum coupled with the tools to teach it properly. That means you need highly qualified teachers, detailed lesson plans and the right toys and supplies.
Small children learn through exploration, and that’s why free time is so important during a preschool day. Prudently selected educational toys help develop their imaginations and creativity. Blocks, painting and drawing tools, dress-up clothes and other toys and supplies children use to exercise their minds and create their own artwork, structures or storylines are so much more enriching than toys that encourage you to keep to a predetermined storyline or format.
Preschool Helps Social & Emotional Development
As important as learning letters and numbers is, pre-K is also the place to learn how to cooperate, negotiate and get along with others. This is especially important for only children or children whose siblings are much older or younger who don’t otherwise get to spend much time with peers.
Group play helps children develop self-control and the ability to cope with disappointment. At Devlin’s Child Development Center, we teach children in pre-K how to work together toward a common goal — a useful skill in the workplace and everywhere life takes you.
When you visit Devlin’s Child Development Center, you’ll see our preschool students playing and learning happily in groups and independently. Some of our students’ favorite spots are the book nook and the outdoor playground. We believe quiet time with a favorite story is just as important as fresh air and exercise.
