Why Pre-K is Important!

This was the best most informative video that I found. Anne Cambell spoke to a group of educators and she expresses the importance of Pre-K thru third grade. She states that their needs to be a close allignment with Pre-k thru third grade teachers. When children go to each new grade, we need to make the transition as smooth as possible. This can be done by communicating with the other teachers. Children learn so much at these ages. There is a close correlation with the drop out rate and proficientcy in reading in the third grade. Children who performed on level in Kindergarten are belived to be 68% more successful in the third grade than others. Children that struggled were believed to be only 21% more successful. Children who attend Pre-K are less likely to repeated grades. Also the reasearch show that special education referals were fewer and more students graduated. However, Pre-K alone is not the fix all, but it is a start.

Pre-K is important for our young children. It provides them with many experiences they might not get otherwise. Children become exposed to numbers, letters, and shapes. Those are what most people call the "academic skills". More importantly, children learn social skills and developmental skills. What others see as "play" is actually the kinds developing social-emotional skills, cognitive skills, language development, literacy skills, and so much more.
