Do kids really need preschool? I mean if you're a SAHM why not just teach them yourself?
Even if you're not is it really necessary?
I mean here are some benefits: Benefits of Preschool
Enhanced social and emotional development: learning to form relationships with peers and teachers, learning to balance the needs of the individual and the needs of the group
Preparation for kindergarten: learning to follow instructions and to adjust to the structure of a school day and classroom
Increased independence: learning to make his or her own choices
Increased sense of competence and self-worth: learning to master tasks like setting the table for snack time, taking care of personal belongings, cleaning up after play, listening to others and speaking in a group
Developing language and cognitive skills
Encouraging a sense of wonder about the world
Boosting pre-math and literacy skills
Developing motor skills
But can't you just do that at home?
