The “Smart” Kid Myth

Here at The Preschool Box, we believe that all children are capable of reaching their full potential when given the proper tools and opportunities. Every child has their own unique strengths and interests but becoming a successful student early on in school can set each child up for a lifelong love of learning and confidence in their own intelligence.

As shown in multiple psychology studies by the American Psychological Association our own intelligence is quite malleable dependent on whether we think we are capable of learning, or rather “believing you can get smarter makes you smarter”. This is why it is so important to us to help each child first discover the joy in learning and then grow her confidence with each activity or game in The Preschool Box.

We all want our kid to be the “smart” kid in class, the one that can help others learn to read or answer math problems confidently, and yet human intelligence is actually quite difficult to describe and measure. Nobody is born with a fixed IQ and our brains are muscles that need exercise just like every other muscle. Early exposure to learning in a fun environment can make every kid the “smart” kid when they get to school and being smart will help them dream large and reach for the stars.

Our goal at The Preschool Box is to help you set your child up for success, so that they will have the knowledge and confidence to believe they can do whatever they dream of achieving.


The Preschool Box Press Release

Local Woman Launches The Preschool Box Subscription to Inspire Fun Learning for Preschoolers and their Parents

Austin, TX – A local kindergarten teacher turned stay-at-home mom is taking the guesswork out of preparing preschoolers for school. Austin’s newest start-up, The Preschool Box, is a monthly subscription box that focuses on providing simple activities, games and crafts that will help parents provide a fun, engaging environment for children ages 3 to 6 while preparing them for success at school. The first boxes have already started shipping!

The Preschool Box’s creator, Christina Schnell, had two primary goals in starting the business: share her passion for teaching with others and help preschoolers get excited about learning and reading.

“As a former kindergarten teacher you see so many kids coming into school very unprepared for the rigorous curriculum that kindergarten now entails. You can definitely see the difference between kids whose parents have worked with them before coming to school and those that show up with no prior learning experience,” Christina said. “I think it’s important for kids to have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and see that learning can be fun!”

To meet that goal, monthly boxes contain more than 16 different activities, crafts and games designed to teach your preschooler letters, numbers, colors, shapes and many other concepts they will encounter during that important first year of school. In addition, each box has a book, fun stickers and a parent guide to help parents explain and teach just like a kindergarten teacher would.

Christina adds, “It’s important for parents to invest in their children’s education and The Preschool Box is a great way to not only educate your children but also to spend time with them.”

The Preschool Box can be purchased at Monthly, quarter-year, half-year, and one-year plans are available, with boxes starting at $25.00.
