President aims to make preschool available for all kids

Posted:

BLUEFIELD W.Va (WVVA)--  According to President Barack Obama, 3 in 10 four-year-olds are enrolled in a high-quality preschool program. The President addressed the issue of making preschool available to every child in America in his State of the Union speech Tuesday.

President Obama said study after study shows that the sooner a child begins learning, the better he or she does down the road. Local parents and teachers agree with the president about the benefits of starting a child's education before kindergarten.

 

Preschool teacher Sheila Reynolds says kids learn to socialize with other children their own age and learn to have a schedule throughout the day. She says they also have the opportunity to learn the alphabet and numbers before starting school full time.
