Why should preschoolers start engaging in language activities as early as possible? Language and literacy are a vital part of our children’s overall development. Skills such as recognizing and learning about letters, numbers, shapes, sorting, and patterns are fundamental skills children need to master. This leads to problem solving and imaginative thinking, which are qualities of successful grownups. Children can develop early literacy skills by being involved in every day activities in their home with their family in addition to school.
