When children are young, they are learning sponges. Every new experience, every word they learn, every behaviour they adopt, is an investment in a more fruitful future. You can never have a greater impression on a person than when they are in their early childhood years.
Early childhood education is about honing and molding the holistic child, which will eventually form the basis of their lifelong journey. Demonstrating and instilling the importance of teamwork can teach respect for the opinions of others, listening, co-operation and equality.|
Many Kindy activities are centred around teamwork for this very reason. A person who learns how to work in a team at an early age will ultimately be more socially attuned and more employable.
