Learning and Preschool

For children aged 3-6 years old, play continues to offer important opportunities for learning and cognitive development.
Allowing children to lead their own imaginative play encourages creativity and helps children make connections between events and experiences. Children in this age group are more familiar with their world and are starting to explore and understand more complex ideas and concepts. They may ask lots of questions and make interesting observations about what is happening around them. A child’s imaginative and educational based play skills continues to become more complex in this age group. Children are developing a range of complex cognitive skills including perception, speech and language, memory, attention, organisation of ideas, decision-making, problem solving and perseverance with tasks. Some children may attend formal care or education settings like day care or preschool. In these settings they learn how to follow instructions and classroom routines, interact and communicate with same age peers and adults, make friendships, and begin preparation for school.
