Learning over the summer is crucial for preschoolers as it plays a vital role in their overall development. Children in this age group are still developing important foundational skills like language, cognitive and social skills and these can be reinforced and expanded upon during the summer months.
Engaging in educational activities over the summer can help prevent learning loss and keep preschoolers on track with their academic progress. Additionally, summer programs can provide opportunities for preschoolers to develop social skills such as making friends and cooperating with others. Furthermore, learning over the summer can help build indolence and self-confidence as preschoolers explore new activities and take on new challenges. Summer learning helps preschoolers stay engaged, build new skills and prepare for the upcoming school year.
