Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why are nursery and preschool are important for my child?
Preschool is a place where your child, through play and exploration, can build self-confidence and self-esteem, develop good learning habits and follow directions, and learn valuable life skills through socializing like getting along with other children, waiting their turn and sharing.
Preschool is, also, the time for children to discover that they are capable of doing things for themselves; from small tasks like washing their hands and cleaning up after play to taking care of bigger issues like making decisions about how to spend their free time.
How can I help my child adjust to preschool?
Going to preschool comes with many emotions, both positive and negative. It is often scary for a child to enter an unfamiliar place; this can cause stress for both the child and the parents. Parents usually have mixed feelings about whether their child is ready for preschool or not. However, parents should be careful about showing their child feelings of guilt or worry about leaving them at preschool, because children will sense these emotions. Keep in mind, that the calmer and more confident you are about your choice to send your child to preschool, the more confident your child will be about going. Talking to your child about preschool before they start can help them communicate their feelings of fear and resolve any concerns. When a child realizes that they are in a safe environment and the mother returns at a regular time, separation becomes easier.
Will my child be ready for Kindergarten?
Your child will surely be ready for Kindergarten, “Learning-through-Play” is our method of teaching; the children participate in "Hands-on Activities" which stimulate their curiosity to ask questions and seek answers. These activities will further prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond as they develop skills and build a foundation in math, science, language and creative thinking.
"Children who attend high-quality preschool enter kindergarten with better pre-reading skills, richer vocabularies, and stronger basic math skills than those who do not."
- W. Steven Barnett, PhD (NIEER Director)
What is your policy on discipline?
We believe in "Positive Discipline", a discipline model used by schools, and in parenting, that focuses on the positive points of behavior. It is based on the idea that there are no bad children, just good and bad behaviors. The child is told what to do, rather than what not to do. Most importantly, we try to find out the reason behind the unwanted behavior and make a plan to deal with it.
The older children are encouraged to think about and resolve conflicts on their own with the guidance of a caregiver, this improves their social skills and builds self-confidence in future difficult situations.
How secure is the building?
ProgressSoft takes security concerns very seriously. There is a full-time security guard on duty, a fire alarm system is in place and fire evacuation drills are conducted regularly.
The main entrance to the Nursery is only accessible by the nursery staff. It is, also, essential to point out that no visitors are allowed without previous arrangements and approval by the Administration Department.
