Parent Tip

It is important to foster preschool children’s independence. Allow them to explore the world around them while keeping a watchful eye on safety. Independence is an essential life skill and it needs to be nurtured from an early age. There are a range of skills in building independence – from helping children to be apart from their families to dressing themselves to encouraging kids to think for themselves.
