Milestones

Understanding the world

You might notice that:

  • I can play with toy cars, trains, animals and people and talk about what happens as I play with them.
  • I can talk about what I see when I play outside.For example, while splashing in puddles or digging in the mud.
  • I can switch on electronic toys, like a torch or remote control car, and know how to press buttons or switches to make something happen.
  • I can make toys – such as a wind up toy – move.

How you can help me learn:

  • Let me explore bubbles, windmills or streamers when it’s windy.
  • Let me use toy cars, buses or trains to make up stories about going to the supermarket, going on holiday or going to nursery.
  • Let me press buttons on toys such as torches or remote control cars to see what happens!
