Does quality crèche care give kids any advantages?

The advantages of using a quality crèche are numerous to your child.

Studies have shown that a child who is cared for in a quality crèche is more likely to be academically and socially skilled.

A child’s first five years of life is a time when habits and attitudes are formed. Children who are cared for in a structured and stimulating environment are better adjusted when it comes time to start formal schooling. They have become used to a schedules and rules, and are more enthusiastic about learning.

Socially, a child who is cared for in a quality crèche will more easily get along with other children and have more confidence.

The main difference between quality crèche care and poor crèche care is consistency. While a child minder in a private home will usually not have a schedule list of activities set for the week, a good crèche will. When a child has consistency, they are happier and ultimately will be higher achievers.
