The Power of Preschool for Growth

Lake Forrest Prep is proud to offer a preschool program that gives children the opportunity to explore a variety of academic, creative, and physical education subjects. Research shows that students who attend high-quality preschool programs reap benefits that last throughout their schooling career. 

Pre-K teaches children how to learn. 

Preschool is one of the first environments students ever have that teach them the fundamentals of learning new information, retaining it, and then recalling the information later. 

Preschool establishes a positive association to school. 

Preschool can lay the foundation for kids to love school, especially if they feel safe and taken care of. At Lake Forrest Prep, our pre-K staff is welcoming and inviting to all students. This helps them associate that warmth with school and, ultimately, learning. 

Children develop their play habits in preschool. 

Kids learn how to play with each other by actually playing with each other. Pre-K is a great way to help children (especially only children) establish a groundwork for how they interact with kids their age. They’ll figure out what activities they like and which ones they don’t. They’ll also quickly discover friendships with other children who like those same activities. 

Pre-K helps make children more literate.

Getting started earlier in a structured learning environment like the one at Lake Forrest Prep means kids are typically exposed to reading and writing faster than non-preschool attendees. Not all parents are able to read to their children on a regular basis, and preschool provides a consistency that helps keep kids on the right track to develop their language skills. 

Kids learn how to take care of themselves and others. 

Young children are incredibly compassionate. Seeing them interact kindly, give, and play with others are things preschools can help foster. Preschools can also help correct behaviors that might harm a child or their peers. Supervised playtime helps set boundaries for kids that they’ll carry with them as they grow older. 

At Lake Forrest Prep, a leading private school in Orlando, our preschool offers an enriching environment where children can discover independence and foster a sense of creativity.
