Girls and boys learn differently. Females typically can sit still longer, have more rigid personal standards in the classroom, and learn better visually. Most importantly, girls tend to intellectually develop earlier than boys do. This unequal development is one of the most commonly cited rationales supporting all girls' preschools over coed ones. These schools give instructors an opportunity to craft classes that are appropriate for young girls, and therefore allow them to best match the needs of students.
Preschool is an especially important time in your child’s life, as it is his or her first exposure to formal education. As such, you should choose a school that best suits to your daughter’s learning style. A single sex school can do just that.
