Preschools are a place where a child undergoes many social and developmental changes. They start learning about different topics and about their environment and most of the important things in life. This early education is very important for the child as it gives them a firm foundation that they can build on. The stronger the basis of this educational foundation is the easier it will be for the child to learn and understand more difficult topics in later classes.
Most parents focus more on the childâs reading and writing skills than on their number skills. however, it is important that the child has a strong foundation for math also. The lack of basic math knowledge can cause many difficulties for the child later in higher classes as they will have to start right from scratch and they will fall behind in class. Schools help children learn to read and write numbers in a series so most of the time the child will just know the series and do not really understand the concept of numbering. This is where math enrichment classes help the child more than traditional schools and classes.
The perfect time to start math enrichment classes is K2 as this is a childâs most formative years they can grasp concepts easily and will remember them for the rest of their lives. Due to the use of alternate strategies of teaching math in K2 the child does not feel any pressure and does not even realise when they have learnt all the concepts as to them they are having fun and playing games. With the use of visual aids and games it is very easy to subtly sneak in math enrichment for k2 level children.
Math is a subject that many students do not understand in the first go; it needs a lot of explanation and practice. When taught like a subject sometimes this class starts to be a burden for the child and thus there is a sense of resentment towards it. Starting math enrichment classes from an early age can help build a sense of enthusiasm for learning the subject in the child. Alternate methods make it easier and hence the sense of resentment also disappears. Thus in their present class and further classes math becomes something they enjoy to study and not just learn because they have to learn it.
