Pre- primary education is fundamental for preparing a child to be a successful, well-adjusted individual in future. It is at this early stage that the rules of social behavior and skills necessary for becoming a responsible social being and a positive contributor to society is set in place.
Pre-primary ESL Teaching offers a wholly child-centric environment that proves beneficial to the intellectual, emotional and also physical growth in a child. Learning is done through activities and games. This favorable environment grooms the child for primary education and ascertains the overall development of a child.
A child grows into an accommodating social being as in pre-primary s/he interacts and socializes with children of the same age. The importance of early age education can no longer be ignored.
Now in Pre primary teaching it is important to include ESL that is teaching English as a second language as well. Teachers of pre-schools are at an advantage if they are ESL trained along with pre & primary teacher training. Pre-primary ESL Teaching offers more choice to teachers.
In India as well in the rest of the world Pre- primary schools are spreading like wildfire and every neighborhood has a pre-primary school that follows either the Maria Montessori or Reggio Emilia (not too common in India) or the "Kindergarten" method. However not all these pre- primary schools are run by trained teachers who are in the know of how to best facilitate learning in young children.
