It can be hard to keep track of all the milestones that our tots go through, especially during their preschool years. Here are some important milestones that we should keep an eye out for when it comes to our little ones.
Movement milestones
You will notice a big improvement when it comes to your little one’s coordination. Your tot will not only be able to go up and down the stairs with ease, but will also be a natural at throwing and catching a ball with you. Your little one will also be able to move forward and backwards with agility too.
Hand skills
While most toddlers have difficulty grasping onto things, pre-schoolers are now able to hold onto the majority of objects with ease. Your tot will be able to now draw various shapes, including people, and could also come to grasps with writing a few letters too.
Language milestones
You’ve probably already noticed how much of chatterbox your little one is, that you wonder how you’re ever going to get them to stop talking. Your toddler should know by now how to form most sentences properly, and has probably already mastered the basics of grammar. But what we love most about this milestone, is how it enables our little one to tell various stories to family and friends.
Cognitive milestones
Most children will regularly engage in play in their own fantasy world, and may have even already created their own imaginary friend. Most pre-schoolers are able to count or at the least say a few numbers by the time they are three. They will also have a clearer sense of time, so they can’t be too shocked when bedtime comes around.
Emotional milestones
Your tot can often be full of surprises, especially when it comes to their emotional milestones. Your preschooler will have no problem with playing with their peers and also enjoying a little bit of independence as a result of this. But even if they engage often in their own fantasy play, they may have some problems in telling the difference
