Learn about learning from these topics:
When educators discuss children's development, they usually talk about physical, mental, social, and emotional development. How Children Develop is a quick lesson in how children develop and the stages they go through. Knowing these will help you understand what stage they are in and what comes next.
How People Learn Best is a reminder there are different learning styles. By recognizing and adapting to a person's learning style, we make it easier for them to learn.
For greater understanding of stages in the development of reading, writing, and math skills and for an idea of what goes on in a quality child care center, read Ready to Learn. You can use that information to help your child do the activities which will enable him/her to progress smoothly to the next stage. Always remember that some children progress faster than others and that the time spent in stages does not reflect their intelligence. They may have a personality which needs to move slower in order to enjoy life and really internalize their learning.
