California has the highest population of all states in the US and as a result, is home to a diverse range of people, cultures and ethnicities.

Raising children with an appreciation of differences is therefore an important part of what we do at Kids Konnect.

Teaching children to be accepting of their peers and to have empathy for others are also lifelong values that will serve them well into adulthood.

One way we teach children about cultures is by introducing them to holidays you may not celebrate at home. Click here to find out more about celebrations at preschool.

What is a Play-Based Curriculum?

At Kids Konnect, we also know that although being a parent is incredibly rewarding, it can be tough on your mental health and social life.

That’s why preschool daycare can be great for you and your child – it enables them to learn and have fun, while providing you a chance to maintain your career or gain extra time for your own needs.

In last week’s blog post, we discussed how preschool helps your child to establish daily routines and can give them a head start academically in an increasingly competitive world.

In part 2 of our extended blog post you can discover how preschool teaches your child about culture and why preschool can help parents to socialize with other parents and caregivers.

Why Preschool Gives Young Children the Best Start in Life (Part 1 of 2)

Sending your child to preschool has many benefits for their personal and educational development.

Whether it’s lessons in STEM subjects or social skills that come through making friends, preschool has positive lifelong effects on young children.

It’s no secret that the Bay Area economy seems to be thriving. But behind the scenes working families are struggling.

Did you know that according to a recent study, over the past four years, childcare costs in the Bay Area have increased by 40 percent?

Although the North California region is home to a higher than average percentage of educated residents, a diverse employer base and robust startups, not everything is as it seems.

Inadequate housing production is a huge concern for young families, as are the worsening traffic problems and resulting pollution.

Rising costs don’t seem to be dampening daycare demand however. A 2017 study found that only 23 percent of children of children in California who needed childcare had a place available.
