The Olympics are almost upon us, and there are many things that your child can learn from watching them.

As your premier preschool in Fremont, CA, we are always looking for lessons in everything we do. The Rio Olympic Games are starting in just a few weeks, and there are so many lessons that your child can learn from watching them. Here are a few things that you can teach your child while watching the summer Olympics this year:

#1. Teamwork

It’s not always easy to teach kids to cooperate with one another and work together, but the teams in the Olympics are great examples of stellar teamwork. While you are watching the Olympics, point out how well the teams work together to accomplish their shared goal.

#2. Sportsmanship.

Losing is never easy, and losing gracefully can be even more difficult, but it’s important to teach your child how to do so. Point out how the athletes congratulate each other on their victories, even when they don’t win themselves.

#3. Hard Work

None of the athletes in the Olympics were born as world champions; they had to work for it. The Olympics are a great example of how your hard work can pay off in the end.

#4. Diversity

The Olympics are a beautiful example of what can happen when people from different religions, races and nationalities come together. In a time when the country and the world feels incredibly divided, we could all use a lesson in the benefits of diversity.

#5. Equality

In the Olympics, all athletes are treated as equals, regardless of what they look like, what they believe or where they are from.
