Sending our babies to school is important to us as parents for so many reasons other than just getting an education, but have you ever thought about how important going to school is for them?

For our September Baby Steps to big words segment, we asked our Baby Steppers two questions, “Why must you go to school?” and “Why is school so good for you?”

Here are their EDUCATED responses:

5 – 6 – Year – Olds

Why must you go to school?

  • “Because I get an education of course.”
  • “Because it is important to learn.”

Why is school so good for you?

  • “Cause you have a lot of fun.”
  • “Because they teach you the knowledge you need to know.”

4 – 5 – Year – Olds

Why must you go to school?

  • “Because you always have to.”
  • “Cause it helps me learns stuff.”
  • “I have to come because my friends are here.”
  • “Because I have to play and work.”
  • “To look after my plants.”
  • “So I can grow a lot and walk a lot.”
  • “Because I get to go home later….”
  • “To learn.”
  • “Because my dad wants me to learn.”
  • “Because I love school.”
  • “Because I’m not naughty like my brothers.”
  • “So I can play with my friends.”
  • “Because I’m going to be a teacher.”
  • “To learn to read and write.”
  • “Because my mom said I must come.”

Why is school so good for you?

  • “Because they give you food.”
  • “So I can play hide and go seek and eat school food.”

3 – 4 – Year – Olds

Why must you go to school?

  • “Because we must learn about everything.”
  • “Because learning is good and we get messy with fun things.”
  • “Because I must learn.”
  • “Because you can listen.”

Why is school so good for you?

  • “Because my mommy said so.”
  • “I like it here by my school.”

2 – 3 – Year – Olds

Why must you go to school?

  • “Because…. I sleep.”
  • “For you (Teacher Anje) to love me.”
  • “Because mommy says so.”

 

Why is school so good for you?

  • “Because I sleep.”
  • “Coz….”
  • “Mommy says it is.”
