Nowadays, many parents ask themselves how to make their children more autonomous, well-behaved, organized, and even improve their focus.
Boys and girls in their early years are learning from everything that surrounds them. The simpler things for us are not for them and require a significant thinking process and motor skills, which are not easy to achieve.
Before learning numbers or letters, kids must know about themselves and the world around them. They must improve those motor skills needed to carry out day-to-day activities that represent the real world.
This will help them have orderly thoughts and develop their autonomy, self-esteem, and motricity.
During this process, children prefer to be around adults and collaborate with their tasks. Allowing children to participate in our activities will give them the chance to nourish their knowledge and develop their socio-affective skills and motor skills.
