“Preschool is much more about developing social-emotional skills than it is about developing academic skills,” says Dr. Yares. These social-emotional skills include learning to share and take turns, showing empathy for classmates and self-regulating their own strong emotions. Without skills like these, children will have a hard time moving on to academic achievement in later years.
“Preschool provides a safe but challenging environment for children to learn how to manage the loss of a toy to another child during play or sit quietly and listen to a short story without interrupting,” Malson says. “These experiences help them explore different feelings and create the foundation for self-regulation.”
