Today, there are thousands of different Children’s Educational Toys available to choose from. To make the right choice for your child, is not always easy. Every child is unique, therefore I want to show you different options for different children to pick the best Educational Toy for your child.
What are we looking for in an Educational Toy?
In my opinion, Educational Toys should focus on the following:
- Gross motor skills – larger movements made with arms, legs, feet or entire body.
- Fine motor skills – smaller actions like picking up objects between finger and thumb. Lips and tongue also uses fine motor skills.
- Hand eye co-ordination
- Problem solving
- Social development – interacting with friends while playing
These are some of the things I will take in consideration when buying the Best Educational Toy for my grandchild.
‘Early childhood development (ECD)’ refers to the physical, psychological, cognitive and social development that a child experiences between birth and school-going age.
Based on various scientific studies, we know that early childhood development plays a key role in determining whether a child will reach his or her full potential. The events that occur during the early years of childhood have a lasting impact, and will affect a child’s growth and development throughout his or her life.
It is for this reason that it is so important for parents to focus on building a strong foundation in early childhood. By creating sufficient opportunities for learning, parents can help children to develop to their full potential.
