Preschooler's Growth and Development (3 Years, 9-Month-Old)

Good observation skills help in keeping track of social and emotional developments of preschoolers. Learn how as a parent, you can help in preschooler’s development.

While you can easily monitor the development of your preschooler, her emotional and social development may not be very evident always. There are in fact not many ways to keep track of her social and emotional developments.

As a parent, it is important you encourage her to observe things around her. Her observation skills shall help her develop emotionally as well as socially. There are so many ways you can support her growth and development!

  2. You must respect her independence. Make sure to praise her as she tries to brush, dress herself or feed her pet.
  3. Help her say the first and the last name. You can also encourage her to learn the home address.

Role of the Preschools and Nurseries

Your child enters a completely new world when she starts going to the >preschool. This is the place that is filled with informal and structured learning. She shall learn the high values of cooperation and good behaviour here. Here is how you can keep a track of her progress and developments:

You can enquire about the kind of learning opportunities your child shall get at school. You can also ask about the kind of developments you can expect from the play and activity sessions.

You can ask about the behaviours and social skills that your child shall require making a smooth transition to the kindergarten.

You must encourage your preschooler to talk about school and the activities she love the most. You can ask her to list activities that are most challenging and interesting to her.

When Parents Should be Concerned?

There is nothing that can be termed as "normal" when it comes to the social and emotional developments of the preschoolers. However, you can consider the time blocks and be concerned if her developments are lagging behind always. Here are some of the instances when you must be concerned:
  • If you find it difficult for her to maintain a positive social status.
  • If you find it difficult for her to maintain her self control.
  • If you find her bullying others or throwing very frequent tantrums.
  • If you find her sad unusually or separated from others.
  • If you find her in extreme anxiety when you are not around.

Make sure to discuss your concerns with her teachers and doctor on time. You shall surely be benefitted by the professional advice.
