Tips from an Early Childhood  Consultant

Young children ages 2-7 years have learning styles that are different from older children and adults. Understanding how young children learn best makes planning and executing activities easier, resulting in more successful experiences for everyone.

Young children learn:

  • through their senses – they learn best when the activity includes things they can touch, see, hear, taste and smell

 

  • through physical activity – They are active and need to be able to move; to run, jump, climb.  It also helps to alternate physically-active experiences with quieter, more sedentary activities.

 

  • through play – Pretend play is the way that children ages 2-7 years begin to make sense of the world around them.

 

  • through exposure to books and reading – Reading to your child every day is another way to encourage vocabulary acquisition and language development.  Children who enjoy books and reading typically learn to read more easily.  The more a child reads, the easier it is to become a good reader – one important element for school success.

 

  • through talking and conversations – These early childhood years are years of rapid language acquisition.  When you think of the difference in language abilities between a 2-year-old and a 7-year-old, you realize the language explosion that has taken place!  Talk to your child(ren) about what you are doing together, whether it is laundry, grocery shopping, or completing a fun activity.  When you provide a rich variety of vocabulary for your child, you are helping in the language acquisition process.

 

  • through repetition – Reading the same story over and over or repeating the same activity several times may not seem exciting to you, but it is comforting for the child and gives him/her feelings of success when they know what to expect.
