When we think of an early learning environment, we often think of books, blocks, paint brushes and ABC’s. But the best way to set your child up for success is to start with basic needs
- Food- If the child is hungry, it will be difficult to concentrate.
- Water-To prevent dehydration always have water available for a child to access by themselves.
- Temperature- If a child is too hot or too cold, it becomes difficult to function. Make sure that their clothing is appropriate.
- Love and security -A relationship has to be established. Earn their trust with your actions. The child must know that your instructions come from a place of love.
When basic needs are met, children are in the right environment to learn and to grow.
