I’m sure most of you can remember your pre-school days. Caring parents found myriad methods to educate their children while entertaining them. This was the “new way” back then, as opposed to the limited techniques our grandparents were exposed to. In a way, the older generation had literally wider view of the world. Before the advent of educational programming, folk would simply read books, sing songs or take kids to parks, zoos, museums and fairs to expose their young to tidbits of the broader world ahead.
You can say it was a little more personal then, but with today’s vast array of selections for preschool learning, the 21st century parent is gifted with an oftentimes taken-for-granted token of the times: options. Yes, we still have parks, play places, zoos and bigger entertainment centers, but we also have television, more literature and the songs of yore still endure (think Itsy Bitsy Spider came out in publication in 1910!). So this “wider view” is continually expanding. And now, as evidenced by you reading this article, we have the world wide web, and with it, cutting-edge websites to help your preschooler get the edge up on learning.
With all of this in mind, it is up to you as parents to make all these modern experiences as personal as they were when your great grandmother read your grandfather a story book with fervor, letting mighty kings and dragons come to life! Blend the old with the new, and integrate. These ten websites are nothing but educational fun, and a great way to bond with your child and allow him or her to learn not just the very basics, but offer a positive experience with modern technology!
The Top Ten (In no particular order of charm):
1. FISHER PRICE, PLAY AND DEVELOPMENT A trusted brand and a toddler tailored website doing justice to their good name. Filled with enriching games and puzzles, and a smart pairing of ABCs and cute animals will keep your child amused.
2. AOL KIDS Enticing shape games, that are virtual versions of the traditional block games still around now are great ways to get your child acquainted to not just regular three dimensional perspectives, but with two dimensional ones as well. This is a sort of cross training drill for perception and crayon drawings.
