Best Preschool Programs

Finding the Best Preschool Programs for Your Child Can be Tough

You already understand the benefits of a high-quality preschool if you are looking online for the best preschool program for your child. However, finding the best preschool program for your child can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. Did you know that there are 71 private preschool programs in Phoenix that serve almost 15,000 children? How do you know who offers the best preschool programs? 

Start With First Things First

From a practical perspective, the time it takes to get to the preschool is essential. If you are in north Phoenix, Adams Traditional Beginnings (ATB) is conveniently located just north of the intersection of the 101 Loop and the 1-17, with easy access on and off the freeway. The other concern is the cost of the preschool. The best preschool programs don’t have to be expensive, and ATB is affordably priced. A third practical item that must be considered is whether the preschool schedule works for the family schedule. ATB offers half and full-day preschool programs, as well as before and aftercare if needed. You can find out more about what we offer HERE

The Best Preschool Programs Should Offer High-Quality Education 

Many parents are unaware of the substantial long term benefits of children attending a high-quality preschool like Adams Traditional Beginnings. According to the American Educational Research Journal, early childhood education, in general, increases a child’s cognitive development, reduces grade retention, and improves behavior during the elementary years.

When determining the best preschool program for your child, factors that you should consider include: 

1) Are teachers positive and caring? 

2) Is the teaching interactive and engaging?

3) Is the discipline positive and patient?

4) Is there free time for play?

5) Is social learning part of the curriculum?

At Adams Traditional Beginnings, we are happy to report that the answers to the above questions are all… YES!

Early Childhood Preschool in North Phoenix

Early Childhood Preschool in North Phoenix Prepares Children to Excel

Many parents ask about the benefits of academic preschool for their child.  Both research and experience have illustrated the numerous benefits of high quality, academic preschool. Adams Traditional Beginnings, an early childhood preschool in North Phoenix, our proven curriculum creates a strong foundation for a successful academic journey. Our fun, creative ways of introducing learning to young minds develop excitement about learning.  The positive reinforcement children receive increases their confidence levels.  

It’s definitely not daycare – our early childhood preschool in North Phoenix is the beginning of your child’s exciting academic journey.  When students graduate to kindergarten from Adams Traditional Beginnings, they are prepared, confident, and eager to learn! 

Childhood Experiences Impact the Way Students Learn and Behave 

At Adams Traditional Beginnings, we recognize that both parents and teachers have a significant impact on the way early childhood preschool students learn, behave, and feel about themselves as they begin their educational journey. This is especially true at the beginning of a child’s academic journey.  Preschoolers, leaving home perhaps for the first time to engage in a world without their parents, need to hear positive words of affirmation to feel secure and confident in this new world outside of their home to confidently engage in the learning process.   

Positive affirmation can come through words of encouragement as well as hugs and smiles from both teachers and parents.  Positive affirmation means communicating that we value each child’s unique strengths.  We practice positive affirmation in the classroom and encourage you to practice it at home so that your child is surrounded by a team of people who believe in them.  If you are unsure of what exactly to say to provide positive affirmation, you can start with simple phrases like the ones below- 

  1. You make me smile.
  2. Thank you for being a good listener.
  3. You are so loved.
  4. I miss you so much when we are not together.
  5. You are so smart.
  6. I love listening to you talk.
  7. Thank you for being so kind.
  8. You can always ask for help.
  9. You have such great ideas.  
  10. You can do it. Keep trying!
  11. Don’t give up – I believe in you. 

Empowering your preschooler with the security of knowing that he/she is loved, appreciated, and believed in will help them gain the inner confidence, curiosity, and motivation to become an eager learner.

3 Year Old Preschool

Summer Camp That Keeps 3 Year Old Preschool Students and Even Eighth Graders Happy!

Are your kids moping around the house because it’s too hot to go outside? Or spending more time in front of the TV or video games than you would like?  Summer is a great time to experience fun and adventure at Adams Traditional Summer Camp! Days at summer camp are filled with fun, adventure, learning, and friendship for 3 year old preschool students up to eighth-graders. 

Story time and reading are part of the fun adventure.  Did you know that reading is one of the most vital components of children’s development? A recent study reveals that preschool children who read at least five books a day enter kindergarten having heard about 1.4 million more words than kids who did not read daily. Adams Traditional Beginnings understands the significance of reading to help children in other aspects of their learning, so we include a reading focus to encourage a love of reading for every student. 

At Adams Traditional Summer Camp, we get our students excited about reading, but it is just one of the fun, educational components of camp. Our preschool and kindergarten students enjoy games, centers, music and movement, arts and crafts, circle time and stories, and phonogram and math review. We can’t wait to get your child excited about learning!  We hope to see them at Adams Traditional Summer Camp. Please visit us HERE to download more info about summer camp, or to enroll, call us at 602-938-5517 x 327.

 More About Reading – Did You Know There is a Million Word Gap?

Jessica Logan, a member of Ohio State’s Crane Center for Early Childhood Research and Policy, shares her conclusions from recent studies testing the importance of reading every day with children. The “million word gap” is key in explaining differences in vocabulary and reading development for children who read daily and children who do not. Kids who hear more vocabulary words by reading every day will be more prepared when seeing these words in print once starting school. Children who have listened to over 1 million words from reading approximately 5 books a day are more likely to pick up on reading skills more quickly and easily. Logan says, “The word gap of more than 1 million words between children raised in a literacy-rich environment and those who were never read to is striking.” She encourages parents to close this gap and make reading a top priority in the home. Even reading one book a day allows a child to hear almost 300,000 more words than children who do not read books every day. 

Our Two Year, High-Quality Kindergarten Preparation Program Makes a Big Difference for 3 Year Old Preschool Students

Early Childhood Preschool

Showcasing the Arts at Our Early Childhood Preschool Summer Camp

Spending time singing and playing with musical instruments, or painting a masterpiece with your child seems like a fun time spent together, but did you know music and art education can significantly increase your child’s development? Research shows the positive effects music and art has on student’s learning and developmental skills. Making music and creating art influences a student’s motor, language, social, cognitive, and academic performance when attending a high-quality early childhood preschool. 

This summer, preschool and kindergarten children have the opportunity to increase their motor and cognitive skills while having fun at Adams Traditional Summer Camp. Pre-k and kindergarten students can spend their summer days enjoying arts, crafts, music, and much more. Learn more about Adams Traditional Summer Camp HERE. We would love to have your child join us for a fun summer of learning and play! 

Playing Music and Creating Art at Our Early Childhood Preschool is a Pretty Big Deal

Research illustrates the many ways music and art facilitate deeper learning in all school subjects. Playing with musical instruments, singing, and creating arts and crafts of all kinds provides a rich experience that benefits students’ as they progress into formal learning. Learning songs, using basic rhythm instruments, or creating artwork involves using multiple skillsets simultaneously. Neuroscience studies indicate the brain of a musician, even a young one, works very differently than the brain of a non-musician. When involved in music and art education, students experience more substantial neural activity growth, making their brains work even harder and benefitting all aspects of their development. 

Ellen Winner, professor of psychology at Boston College, and Gottfried Schlaug, professor of neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, led a study that found changes in the brain images of children involved in weekly music instruction and practice. The students in the study who received music instruction had improved sound discrimination and fine motor tasks, and brain imaging showed changes to the networks in the brain associated with those abilities, according to the Dana Foundation, a private philanthropic organization that supports brain research. Music and art education are related to spatial intelligence, improved test scores, and even an increased IQ, even when introduced through the beginning skills of early learners.

Local preschool

Local Preschool Summer Camp at Adams Traditional Beginnings

Being bored is just not OK! Right now, your preschool or kindergarten student could be having fun and learning at the same time! We invite you to check out what our local preschool, Adams Traditional Beginnings, has going on all summer long.  Fun, interactive, and educational – children are never bored, despite the long hot Arizona summer. With games, crafts, art, music, story time, reading and writing, and even math review, there is so much your child’s curious mind will interact with every day of camp! 

Having Fun in the Heat While Growing Young Minds Through Centers and Activities 

Preschool and kindergarten children are naturally enthusiastic and curious learners. They love to ask questions, investigate, examine, and experiment with growing their mind and better understanding the world around them. At Adams Traditional Summer Camp for Pre-K and Kindergarten children, we use centers.  Did you know that centers are a great way for students to grow?

What in the World is a Center?

Learning centers are different parts of a classroom, each focused around a specific subject or activity. One center can involve your child’s dramatic play, one center can revolve around art or music, and other centers can be focused around manipulating objects or recognizing letters and numbers. 

Why are Centers Important?

Centers focus on the development of the whole child. Academic development is vital to prepare preschoolers for kindergarten and elementary school. Social, emotional, and physical development works hand in hand with your child’s academic success. Diverse learning centers implement the best activities for child-initiated exploration and discovery. 

How do Centers Impact my Student’s Academic Journey?

A 2018 research study at Adnan Menderes University concluded that learning centers have a significant, positive impact on preschool children’s early academic and language skills, mathematical development, and print awareness skills. Children experience new information and material without fear of failure because they can focus more on the process than the result. Learning centers also teach young students how to relax in an academic environment by reducing tension and pressure. Children can feel confident in comfortable surroundings feeling free to express themselves.
