How activities help your child�s development?

It has been commonly agreed by experts that not only children learn quicker through play activities but they also have a better chance of remembering what they learnt through activities. This is one of the reason why preschool education is important. Children learn the basics of language and mathematical skills in groups via a series of interesting and engaging activities at pre-schools. This not only improves their academic skills but helps in their cognitive development, social development as well as individual growth. Being outside their family circles for a little time every day also helps in instilling a sense of independence in them.
