What is a play-based curriculum? [video and blog]

With an abundance of preschool teaching philosophies out there, you'll probably be left confused on what's the best choice for your child. In reality it comes down to a number of things in addition to the curriculum including cost, convenience, community, and location. 

It would be wrong for me to say that play-based sits at the top of preschool curriculum leader board because every child is different. However, one thing is for sure, kids are kids! They're meant to have fun in the early years but that doesn't mean they can't pick up skills and knowledge at the same time.

We've spoken to Kids Konnect teachers across the Bay Area and have come up with these three awesome benefits as well as quick video interview:

Learning Through Play: The Importance of Play at 4 Months (San Leandro)

Play is integral to a child’s development.

It is through play, that infants begin to move, communicate, socialize, and understand their surroundings, all of which are crucial for interaction.

In their early days, your child is starting to use their senses to navigate the world.

As a child grows, they learn to use their bodies to make discoveries.

Furthermore, by using their eyes, ears, nose, hands, and mouth as their tools children become capable communicators.

So, why exactly is play so important during the first year, and what can you do to keep things fun and interesting for your child?

Healthy Eating for Preschoolers: The Importance of Breakfast

 
Does your preschooler eat a healthy breakfast?

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day.

By fueling your child with important vitamins and minerals, a nutritious morning meal helps your child to concentrate in the classroom.

Furthermore, by building a foundation of healthy eating habits, your child is less likely to crave sugary junk foods in the future.

At our Kids Konnect preschools in Pacifica, San Mateo, Oakland and San Leandro, we offer a varied selection of healthy snacks to keep your child’s hunger at bay.

So, why exactly is it so important that children eat breakfast every day?
