3 - 4 Years
Three-year-olds are moving along the road to independence. They are less reliant on you and more likely to enjoy time exploring by themselves. Collaborative play and large construction activities, along with plenty of running around and outside exercise, lay the foundation for a steady start to school. Painting, sand and water and messy play develop strong grip. While imaginative play, especially around goodies and baddies, becomes fascinating.
