Words from the Expert:


Many Children are Ready for Enrichment Opportunities by the Age of 3

Parents are the best judges of when their child may be ready to participate in learning enrichment opportunities outside the home. Even toddlers can benefit from having the opportunity to interact with other children in a fun and engaging environment. Enrichment opportunities in the Arts or Language are great examples of appropriate enrichment experiences for younger learners.

By 3 years of age, many children are ready for enrichment opportunities like sports and dance where they develop their gross motor skills and experience team work. Again, parents should be guided by their child’s needs and interests; enrichment opportunities such as yoga and ballet can support the children’s personal wellbeing. Developing an interest in Science or confidence in Maths from a young age can be highly beneficial for children.
