Preschoolers are constantly on the move, exploring their world with exuberance, curiosity, and a seemingly endless source of energy. A child's capacity for learning in this stage is enormous. Preschool-age children learn and develop from every experience, relationship, and adventure they encounter. Having the space and opportunity to explore objects and play environments helps preschool children develop their imagination and master the motor, cognitive, language, and social skills that are essential for future development.
This section, Preschool Child Development, features titles describing the many different changes and areas of development the preschool-age child experiences, and offers parents, teachers and childcare professionals valuable insight into that experience.
