preschool resourcesIt is important toddlers and preschoolers get out of their comfort zone and learn about the world around them. The only way to do this is by introducing them to various activities and letting them gain experience. When toddlers have prior knowledge, it allows them to excel in future learning activities and also grow socially and emotionally. Having the right education resources allows preschoolers to foster creativity and teamwork and also teaches them social skills, as they engage with other children and adults besides their parents and siblings.

Finding the Right Education Resources

Parents are often flummoxed and don’t know the type of educational resources and activities they should select for their preschoolers. The rule of the thumb is to select activities that are in line with your child’s interests. This said, not all activities should be focused just on the child’s interests. It helps to introduce new activities and get your toddler out of his comfort zone.

Places to Look for Education Resources

Whether you are living in Cleveland, North Ridgeville or Elyria, you can check with the local public library. Most public libraries offer programs for different age groups throughout the year. For instance, your toddler or preschooler can be part of the story time or enroll in a holiday program that most libraries start in fall.

The YMCA is a good place for physical education programs. Look for programs that develop gross motor skills. These include activities like running, balancing, basketball, soccer and football.

Check with non-profit community organizations, such as Horizon Education Centers, for after school-programs and head-start-programs geared towards toddlers.

There are so many places that have some great education resources especially meant for preschoolers and toddlers. Parents should take advantage of these resources and inculcate a love for learning. If this happens, kids will take this love over to their future learning and educational-experiences.
