Mother is always the first teacher for her child. But there are other things which a kid needs to learn apart from his homely school. Things like how you can mingle with other kids, share and play with your friends and basic manners. As a parent, we are always curious when our child comes from school, wondering what he learned new today. We often ask our kid, what did you do today in school?
Pre-schoolers come anywhere from 18 months to 5 years. The first step is the toddler, then as they go to higher class like nursery, they learn:

When your kid learns to recognize all the alphabets, sing rhymes, it will give him the confidence when he goes in the big school. A pre-school is a stepping stone towards the world of school. You can also help your child to increase his interest in his pre-school by reading story books with him and singing rhymes and participating
in role plays with him. When you read with the kid, you inculcate the habit of reading.
