Should Your Child's Preschool Have An Academic Focus, Or Is It Too Early?

Deciding on the philosophy of the preschool your child will be attending can be a very challenging decision for many parents. Although there are various philosophies such as Montessori, Bank Street, and Community, these are usually classified as either play-based or academic. Different groups will swear by different philosophies, but there haven’t been many studies done that can conclusively show which is best. Many people argue that at such an early stage, an academic focus offers the child no additional benefits.
