Every parent will wish that their children should get the best education. But when they are making their choices, they are forced to take into account a number of other factors also and in such situations, they may choose a wrong school for their kids. Especially if a wrong that also has a pre-nursery in it is chosen, the kids will not get the benefits the parents want them to get. Let us now see what the common mistakes you, as a parent, may commit while choosing a pre-nursery.
Since there are a number of pre-nursery schools available , you may feel that your task of making your choice may be difficult. Further, there are chances of you getting lured by the brand names of big schools. Remember that big schools that have built very strong brand names need not be suitable for your kids. So, if you just go by the brand popularity and choose a wrong school, you may regret your decision later. You should therefore shift your focus towards choosing the right school that matches with the learning style of your children instead of focusing on finding a big school that has built a brand names
If you do a research about the secret of how the famous and the wealthy have achieved success, you will find that they have been able to reach those heights not because of their academic brilliance but due to their inter-personal skills. But unfortunately, a number of parents have a notion that grades, scores and marks alone will provide their kids with the ability to succeed in life. So, they commit the mistake of choosing a school and more particularly, a pre-nursery that lays more emphasis on academics.
When you insist that your kids must get high marks and shine well in their academics, you may be committing the big mistake of blunting their creativity. You may also prevent them from developing good people skills. Due to this, when they grow up, they may be shy and so, may find it difficult to expand their network. More importantly, their Emotional Quotient or E.Q. may be very low, though they may have a high I.Q. or Intelligence Quotient. No one will deny the fact that in today’s context, EQ plays a bigger role in helping people succeed than IQ. Most of the employers of the present-day world insist that their employees should collaborate and work as a team because they undertake huge projects that cannot be handled by a single individual. So, those with a brilliant academic record but lack people skills may not appeal to such companies.
In short, by giving more importance to academics while choosing a pre-nursery, you may miss out on developing your children as team players. Instead, you should find a pre-nursery that provides a suitable environment so they can develop their passion to succeed and discover the value of hard work, networking and collaborating with others.
You may want your children to be doctors, bankers, lawyers or accountants and may look for a pre-nursery that can pave the way for helping them to become such professionals. This may be a mistake also. You do not know what your children are interested in and in which field they will be able to passionately persevere so they can make a mark.
Instead of trying to micromanage the activities and studies of your children, give them the freedom to choose the field in which they want to pursue their education. Of course, as very young kids who are at the pre-nursery age, they may not be able to make their decisions. But the pre-nursery you choose should provide them with an environment that facilitates their brain development so they can choose the field they are passionate about when the appropriate moment arrives.
