Early Childhood: The Formative Period

Early childhood is a crucial period in a child's development. During these years, children lay the foundations for their physical, mental and emotional health. Parents can use this period to promote their children's cognitive, social and emotional development by providing them with a loving, supportive and stimulating environment.


Parental influence on education

Parents can support their children's education right from the start. Reading aloud, playing together and having conversations help develop the child's language skills. Parents can also support their children's curiosity and answer their questions to encourage their natural motivation to learn.

Social and emotional development

Parents also play an important role in their children's social and emotional development. Creating a loving and safe environment in which children feel safe strengthens their emotional connection and promotes self-confidence. Parents can support their children in developing social skills, managing conflict and showing empathy.

Encouraging creativity and curiosity

Parents can support their children's creativity and curiosity by giving them opportunities to explore the world around them. Creative play, art and music provide opportunities for children's discovery and self-development.

The role of parents in the preschool period

During the preschool years, parents can support preparation for school by encouraging playful learning and supporting the development of basic skills such as numbers, letters and social skills.

The role of parents in early childhood education and development is of great importance. Parents have the unique opportunity to support their children's physical, cognitive, social and emotional development and give them a solid foundation for a successful future. Parental support, care and stimulation are key to a child's growth and development.
