Parent workshop – Early Childhood Education and School Readiness

Early Childhood Education and School Readiness

We will share best practices on the latest research in education for children. Emphasis will be on learning in a daycare and preschool environment. Similarities and differences in philosophy and practical application in a daycare and school environment will be shared.


Simple and easy-to-implement tips based on our experiences in running a school will be offered, such as homework completion, daily learning discipline and outcomes for school success. This is part one of a four-part series.

General Background

Readiness is a State of Mind

Research shows that the best thing we can do to get children ready for school is to form and keep positive relationships with them. Children who are securely attached to their family members accept themselves as worthy individuals. With ongoing family support, they can handle the frustrations, embarrassments, pressures, and successes that come their way. Securely attached children are better able to make friends, work with others, solve problems creatively, learn, and succeed. The best predictor of children’s success in school and life is a brain that develops in healthy ways, as a result of their attachments with their family, and especially their parents.
