     After you have a list of skills and know where your child is in his development, the best way to teach these skills is with everyday life. Use chores and teachable moments as they arise to work on skills.


Mommy Knows Best
Not all of the activities mentioned on this page will be appropriate for your child. You know your child best and will need to decide what your goals are for your child as an early preschooler. May the Lord give you the guidance and wisdom needed for your journey.
