In daycares many of the staff provides nursery rhymes that would label their parts of the body, for instance 'heads and shoulders, knees and toes' this nursery rhyme enables the child to understand where parts are on their bodies and caregivers also tend to expand on what the function is. Children also acknowledge comprehension skills as to reading, writing etc. Third of all, daycare helps the child to prepare for elementary school. One way that it does this is that the child becomes accustomed to having a different adult around them and helping them to accomplish many of the tasks per day.

Field Experience/Observation I chose to observe at two local preschools. The reason for this was because I wanted to be able to compare and contrast their programs. It was a wonderful experience to see the differences in the different program. I picked a preschool that focuses on learning through play and the other school has a more academic focus. I was able to spend several hours at each school and entering each school took me back to being a child and brought back so many memories of the preschool I attended as a child.
With early intervention there are many services that parents can use relating to their child’s disabilities. Early intervention is for children from birth up until about kindergarten and it helps to prepare the family for the educational journey that they will face over the course of their life.

The conclusion of the study was that early Montessori education had a long-term impact on later public school performance”(Cavegn).
