Why developing social skills is important for young children
In this article we look at the importance of developing a range of social skills from a young age, to equip children with the skills they’ll need later in life.
How children form relationships can influence their short-term and lifelong opportunities. Our educators pay careful attention to how your child socialises and will help them develop the skills to make friends, get along with others and feel comfortable in group settings. They will model respectful and kind relationships, support your child to develop their own strategies for managing conflict and ease them into settings where they lack confidence.
Developing an understanding of their place in the community also helps children grow socially. Our educators will encourage your child to think and talk about what’s happening in their community and provide opportunities to participate in activities and events where they can build relationships with people of all ages and backgrounds.
