Toddlers are busy people. From the moment they wake up in the morning, they are actively exploring their world by using all five of their senses. As you go about your day, they are busy observing and imitating you. When you can’t be with your toddler, whether that is due to work or other obligations, you want to know that he or she is still receiving the mental stimulation needed for growth.
Why Peer Interaction is Important in the Early Years
It’s important to realize that some children learn best by observing other children and developing strategies on how to interact with them. This can be difficult to achieve if your toddler is with one primary caregiver and no other children in your absence. As much as you love your child, you may not have the time or resources to provide all of the learning opportunities he or she needs in your own home.
By enrolling your child in a preschool or daycare in Tampa, it gives him or her the opportunity to experiment with sand and water, hear age-appropriate stories, finger paint, and engage in numerous other activities that promote brain development. When your toddler is around peers during the day, he or she learns to play and get along with others at an earlier age.
