Your curious preschooler finds learning fun. It's important for parents to nurture this love for learning now, while attitudes toward learning are being formed.
With the busy schedules of extracurricular activities, children have fewer opportunities for unstructured free time. Children benefit from time set aside just to relax, restore and reflect.
It might look like a whole lot of silliness, but what's going on in your toddler's developing brain as she goofs off is more than child's play.
Supply your preschooler with crayons instead of felt-tips in order to develop hand strength as she draws.
Help your child learn to write by filling a spray bottle with water and letting him loose! (In the garden, of course.)
When you are planning an outing with your child, encourage your child to talk about it before, during and after.
