Games and games that contribute to the development of the cognitive and socio-affective capacities of preschool children.
Playing, playing or having a hobby are fundamental activities for the development of the child since they promote learning, increase reflective thinking, creativity and contribute to the construction of new knowledge.
EDUCATIONAL GAMES FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN
Playing is one of the main means of expression of the child that enables research and learning about people and the world.
For pre-school children, games are the best way to acquire new learning and to develop socio-affective, moral and motor skills.
Playing with your child is also an opportunity to get to know him even better. When we do activities with children we can observe how they move, how they relate effectively and socially and get information about their ideas, interests, and needs.
Children spend (or should spend) most of their time playing. Create spaces, provide appropriate toys for each phase of the child’s development, diversify activities so that they have the opportunity to equally develop all their potential, to build their individual and collective identity, to question and build their vision on the world, nature, and society.
