As a parent, choosing the right early education program for your child is an important decision, and deciding between part-time and full-time preschool can have drastic effects on your child’s social and academic growth.
It’s crucial to find a program like Little Newtons that nurtures your child’s growth and development while instilling essential preschool skills. Full-time preschool offers numerous benefits that can help your child thrive and become well-prepared for the upcoming changes in Kindergarten and beyond.

Understanding School Norms
In full-time preschool, children are exposed to school norms and learn how to interact with their peers and teachers. You’d be surprised how alien the concept of lining up can be to Kindergarteners who have never attended preschool, and learning some of these norms early can make the transition to Kindergarten so much easier. At Little Newtons, we provide a safe and inclusive environment where children can learn important social and emotional skills, such as sharing, taking turns, and following rules.
Full-time preschool programs provide opportunities for children to develop social skills and make friends faster, helping them build confidence and self-esteem. Little Newton’s full-time preschool program provides a nurturing environment where children can learn to work and play together, building positive relationships that can last a lifetime. The added length of the day helps children build deeper connections with each other.
Full-time preschool programs help children develop independence, self-care skills, and a sense of responsibility. We know your little one has been by your side for years and it can be tough to let them go, but just think of all the amazing opportunities for growth they can have by spending a full day with their peers. At Little Newtons, we encourage children to take care of themselves and their belongings, helping them build self-confidence and self-reliance.
