If you’d like to build your preschooler’s life skills, make sure that you don’t forget to encourage them to explore.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD EXPLORE
Young children need to explore their environment and learn through open-ended child-led play. This type of play is essential for healthy brain development. Important connections in the brain are made during play that impacts future learning.
Providing children with opportunities to explore creates natural teachable moments for young children. Through exploration children learn how to take small manageable risks, solve problems, and develop motor and social-emotional skills.
