Showing up on time every day is important to your child’s success and learning from preschool forward.
Missing 10 percent of preschool (one or two days every few weeks) can:
- Make it harder to develop early reading skills.
- Make it harder to get ready for kindergarten and first grade.
- Develop a poor attendance pattern that’s hard to break.
High quality preschool programs have many benefits for your child. The routines your child develops in preschool will continue throughout school. You can make the most out of preschool by encouraging your child to attend every day!
