Practical Life


Here we are focusing on everyday skills – daily living. Children are familiar with some activities in practical life through their daily routine at home. The aim here is to help refine what they know how to do. Through practical life activities children are not only preparing themselves for later intellectual work but also developing their emotional and social skills. Through these activities children expand their knowledge of their environment, increase their physical skills, helping them to appreciate their role as part of a group, their independence and sense of internal motivation which will sustain their desire to explore and wonder.
