More Than Teaching: Why It Is Important to Nurture Children

At Discovery Point of Zoar Rd., we bring a multicultural approach to taking care of the children in our center. We understand the importance of education during the early stages of a child’s life, but it is not the only focus and this is something that our team recognizes. As such, it is important to nurture children and care about them. Here are some of the benefits.

Increased Confidence & Self-Esteem

Children need to know that someone cares about them and that they are important to those around them. Even at a young age, the potential for low self-esteem and lost confidence is a possibility. By fostering a nurturing relationship, there is the increased potential of a boost in confidence and self-esteem, allowing for easier future interactions and goals.

Build Trust

When you drop your child off at daycare, it can be a difficult task for both you and the child. Neither wants to leave the other because you simply don’t know what will happen. Under a nurturing relationship, children begin to trust others who show compassion and care for them, making this transition easier to experience.

Developing Interaction Skills

Interaction at an early age can help set the stage for future relationships and friendships. Building a strong connection for communication increases the ability for a child to interact with a teacher and others around them. They spend more time talking to the teacher and letting loose, trusting them more than they normally would have.

We want to ensure our parents that when they leave their children with us, they are in the best hands possible. We truly care about every staff member, parent, and child with whom we have the pleasure of dealing. It is our passion to ensure every child has the resources and tools they need to succeed academically, socially, and developmentally.
