Independence is a foundational, essential character trait in any work environment. While children rarely need to be taught independence, it needs to be cultivated appropriately in order to be beneficial.
Daycare is a wonderful environment to foster healthy independence!
In a daycare setting, children in a daycare setting don’t have their parents or other relatives around. This helps children rely on themselves rather than adults to communicate with teachers and other classmates. When children are given age-appropriate tasks, they are more likely to learn perseverance than a child who can immediately ask a stay-at-home parent to do the job for them.
Children are born with a desire to help. As soon as they can walk, children can contribute to the smooth functioning of the classroom. They can get out markers for craft time, wipe the tables for mealtime, and clean up toys. Children in a preschool program can further grow in their independence as they learn to take responsibility for their own learning. As children get older, they can take on more responsibility and more complex tasks.
Independence benefits your child throughout their life. From chores and schoolwork to their first job and career, independence is necessary to live a fulfilling life. Independence helps your child take responsibility for their own actions and gives them pride in their work.
