    Cooperation, negotiation, listening skills, and sharing. Children can learn these skills in a variety of ways, but children often receive enhanced learning in a good daycare setting like Little Academy of Humble where they are surrounded by other children and caregivers each day. Socialization skills set children up to have confidence, to understand how to interact with other people, to have fun, and so much more!

    Daycare Builds Confidence

    New people. New situations. New activities. New environments. Kid’s daycare programs provide all of this to your child in a safe way, which gives your child the chance to develop confidence with things that are new. When your child realizes he or she can handle a variety of different situations, your child’s confidence will soar. Your child will not be afraid to continue trying new things. Meeting new people and encountering new situations builds self esteem and resilience.

    Daycare Helps Develop Problem Solving Skills

    In a good daycare setting such as Little Academy of Humble, a child may encounter situations they wouldn’t encounter elsewhere. Another child takes a toy away. Your child takes a toy from another child. They wait their turn to receive a snack. They play interactive games with multiple children. They learn from caregivers who aren’t their parents. And on and on.

    And with each of these daily occurrences, your child is faced with a decision. He or she can choose to cry, to hit, or to ask for the toy back. To run to the front of the line or to wait their turn. Most children quickly learn skills that help them get what they want, as well as be considerate of other people. These problem-solving skills transfer to all other aspects of your child’s life. Your child learns not to give up when confronting new problems.

    Daycare Teaches Diversity

    Your child will be exposed to people from different families, cultures, and backgrounds at daycare. This is especially true at Little Academy of Humble, and what a great benefit this offers daycare children. Considering other people do things in different ways is a valuable lesson for a young child to learn. Appreciating other viewpoints will only help your child more develop compassion and kindness.

    Daycare Teaches Sportsmanship

    At daycare, kids have to learn to be part of a team which helps them to develop good sportsmanship skills. They may want every red crayon in the daycare facility all to themselves, but they will be gently directed by caring daycare teachers to consider the needs and wants of others. And the reverse is also true. They’ll begin to see that their needs are still important, even in a group setting, and others should be considerate of them as well.

    Daycare Develops Communication Skills

    Patient teachers who understand children are excellent at giving your child the opportunities they need to communicate in ways that are comfortable to them. They are also skilled at helping your child learn new communication skills as time goes on. And as your child observes other children at daycare, her or she will learn many new positive ways to communicate.

    Daycare Develops Language Skills

    Daycare offers children so many opportunities to develop language skills through social interactions. From talking to other children to talking to teachers, your child uses his or her own language frequently. In addition, your child’s vocabulary expands as he or she listens to the day care teacher’s lessons and instructions. Add in the hours of story time, dramatic play, and other language-based activities that you’ll find in most good daycares, and you’ll see your child’s language skills blossom.

    Daycare Offers a Professionally Trained Staff

    Daycare teachers are trained in childhood development. They have experience working with a multitude of children with various personalities. They have seen, and are also often trained to see, various developmental, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges as children interact with other children. Seeing concerning signs and symptoms early on is a huge benefit to parents.

    Daycare Offers Fun and Entertainment

    The best daycares are fun and entertaining for children. Children who have fun playing with other children are happy. And because children learn through play, children who get the opportunity to play learn valuable skills and lessons they couldn’t learn another way. Daycare facilities are full of age appropriate toys, enriching activities, and plenty of friends to facilitate a truly fun, enjoyable, and social day for your child.
