Importance of Social Development:

According to the National Child Development Organization, the more opportunities to interact with other children equals more chances to learn how to socialize.  A day care program can help kids under school age improve their skills in areas such as sharing, making friends, taking turns, and communicating with others.  The day to day interaction with peers can help a child to feel more comfortable in group dynamics and better understand socially acceptable do's and don't's such as not talking when someone else is speaking to you or asking to play with a toy instead of just taking it.

   a chance to practice what they are learning!
