Approaches to Learning - Older Preschoolers (45 to 60+ Months)
Older preschoolers want to learn new things - and often display a contagious sense of excitement and wonder for whatever it is they're learning about. This is a fun stage for parents and caregivers, because most kids are past the tantrum-prone toddler phase. Now it's even more fun to get out and explore, visit parks and museums, and discover new interests and activities. Watch your child carefully to identify and support their growing interests.
