Importance of socialisation in child development

Did you know that social interaction is one of the most important factors for health and development?

Social interactions are how we act and react to those around us; they form the basis of any relationship between two or more people at any age.

The earliest a child is exposed to socialisation, the more benefits he/she will be able to benefit from.

And the benefits are:
  • increased cognitive ability
  • good mental health
  • communication skills
  • independence
  • developing strong language skills
  • creativity
  • empathy
  • communication
  • confidence
What is the importance of socialisation in child development?

Early childhood experiences outside the home can have a major impact on a child’s early socialisation; each interaction helps your child move more comfortably among social groups and adjust to changing environments.

It will help them in the learning process of being part of a team/group, solving problems, respecting authority and group/society’s rules, understanding emotions and consequences, easing separation, and forging new bonds. It will also help decrease anxiety for children AND parents, as well as getting them ready for school later on.

Socialising with other children their own age helps children learn the vital skills they will need in later life. Interacting with others at our creche gives children the chance to establish boundaries, to note how others react to their actions, and to find ways to resolve conflicts amicably; all valuable skills that they will take into adulthood!
