Competitive games for preschoolers

I think it's important to teach children that they aren't always the winner, but only to a certain degree. Competition is important in preschool, but I prefer team competition where a group wins and a group loses. This way, there are peers experiencing the same emotion as your child and they don't feel singled out or neglected. There are many things that don't need to be competitive, but I think every once in awhile competition is not only healthy, it's necessary.

What do you think? Should preschoolers be given the opportunity to compete with each other?
